Destination St. Petersburg: Nevsky Prospekt

Destination St. Petersburg: Nevsky Prospekt Ph. Juri Signorini

Nevsky Prospekt is the wide avenue that crosses the city of St. Petersburg from the west to the east joining the Admiralty to the Alexander Nevsky Monastery.

With its 4.5 km. in length and a width ranging from 25 to 60 m., "Nevsky" is the main artery of the city and the most famous street in Russia. As Gogol wrote "in Petersburg, there is nothing better than Nevsky Prospekt. It is all about."

The center of the city in fact develops, around the large street, lined with magnificent buildings and embellished with churches, theaters, historic shops (do not miss the luxurious grocer art nouveau Eliseevskij), picturesque bridges and charming squares. The Prospect is a lively place, animated day and night, always cherished by Petersburgers for its cafes, restaurants and cinemas, as well as being a true outdoor museum.

Walking on the Perspective can be admired small and big masterpieces, such as the Stroganov Palace, beautiful example of Russian Baroque, the National Library of Russia, the literary café that exudes from the nineteenth century atmosphere, Ostrovsky Square, one of the most beautiful squares of the city with the monument to Catherine II, the Anichkov bridge with the statues of horses and trainers, the sumptuous Beloselskij-Belozerskij palace with richly carved dark red façade and the Cathedral of Our Lady of Kazan, majestic building inspired by St. Peter's in Rome with miraculous image of Our Lady of Kazan venerated by the Russian people.

Juri

Born in Riccione, a seaside town on the Italian coast of the Adriatic Sea. Of Italian father and a Russian mother, I always define myself a crossroads of cultures, in fact I never identified with a nationality, considering myself a real world citizen.
From the early years of life I've traveled, living periods of time abroad, experiences that have further increased my openness towards the new and the different, and the ability to think outside the box.
I'm graduated Expert for Tourism, and continued hmy studies with a Masters Degree in Economics and Management. During and after the studies, I had a multitude of different jobs, mostly oriented towards tourism (my true passion, together with art and opera). Since 2008 I lives in Milan, working in the finance department of an Italian multinational company.
My passion for culture, led me to found in 2013, Kitabu, a publishing house specializing in the publication of books in electronic format, with which in 2015 I launched various projects regarding web-based magazines about different cultural and leisure themes, on of wich is TravelTv.
Despite the many commitments, however, I've never stopped traveling extensively the world, trying in every place to identify myself with the local population.
