28 Nevsky Prospekt St. Petersburg

7 812 312 4936

Even on a thronging part of Nevsky Prospekt that is packed with tourists snapping pictures of the Church of Spilled Blood, it is impossible to miss this beautiful bookstore, the largest in St. Petersburg. Known for the enormous window displays and glass dome roof (a trademark of the Singer Sewing Machine factory which occupied the building until 1917), the store is open 24-hours a day and boasts a good selection of English-translated texts, Russian classics and reproduction Soviet-era propaganda posters that make great and unusual gifts.
