A quiet day on Nevsky Prospect

September 22nd, 2008

I just remembered that there are lots of photos from Russia that I never posted, so here are a few more.

Nevsky Prospect is one of Russia’s most famous streets and St Petersburg’s main thoroughfare. On our last day, the road was closed for resurfacing and open only to pedestrians. It was so weird to see it used by people with umbrellas, not bumper to bumper traffic!
