Nevsky Prospect is the spine of St. Petersburg pedestrian traffic, its a long, wide avenue with wide footpaths on both sides, served by seven metro stations and includes several iconic landmarks of the city. The majority of the city's shopping and nightlife are located on or right off this street. Its very rare to find a daygamer in this city that doesn't go to it.

You can start by going to Vosstaniya Square, the surrounding area concentrates a lot of people because it contains the city's main railway station (Moscow Railway Station), a metro station (Ploshchad Vosstaniya) and St. Petersburg's largest shopping centre (Galeria). Keep yourself close to this area in case it looks like it will rain as you can retreat in the mall.

From Leningrad Hero City Obelisk you can walk west until you reach the iconic Palace Square, on your way there will be plenty of pedestrian anchors such as landmarks, shops and metro stations, bare in mind that this entire walk can take you more than 30 minutes to complete.

During university season its worth crossing from Palace Square to Vasilyevsky Island, home of the second largest university in Russia (Saint Petersburg State University).

Best times to visit

Weather is ideal from May to September. Although university break is from july to august, the city keeps itself busy due to its large size so keep it in your list for those times.


Russia has a Low proficiency English First English Proficiency Index score of 52.19, some girls you will find in Saint Petersburg will be able to speak to you in English, so be prepared for many girls with very low english skills.

Learn Daygame

I believe the best method of street game is the London Daygame Model. I recommend the key textbook Daygame Mastery. It's an encyclopedia of street game technique. For video, I suggest the infield instructional Daygame Overkill.
