The main street of Saint Petersburg is Nevsky Prospekt. Peter the Great, the founder of the city, designated this road to be the way to Moscow and Novgorod. The most iconic sights of the city can be found on this historic avenue including the Singer house, many 18th century churches, the Russian national library, the Anichkov Bridge amd the Great Costiny Dvor, an enormous shopping center one of the oldest in the world. Nevsky Prospekt is the heart of the social life of the city as the majority of shopping and nightlife take place there.
