This is the main thoroughfare in the city, and you can find everything there: shops, good restaurants, movie theater and ice cream parlor. Pretty touristy, excellent for people watching but really a nice experience. Also close to many of the main sights.

It is the main shopping street of Vladivostok. It is quite crowded during rush hours. The shops are modern and many of shopkeepers can speak English. One can buy souvenirs from the shops at reasonable price. The restaurants and cafes are good for money too.

In terms of boutique shops, fancy restaurants, and art shows, this is where you want to be. Always something going on and in the heart of Vladivostok.

Svetlanskaya Street is the city's main street. It has many shops and restaurants. Unfortunately, it was dead when I walked down it because of the torrential rain. I can imagine, however, that it is packed with locals during the evenings and weekends with nice weather.

Other reviewers mentioned the traffic fumes but I usually live in London so didn't find the fumes too bad. It's an interesting street with a mixture of interesting old and some new buildings. Loads of banks and clothes shops. The main square then the Arseniev...More
