Department Stores: Apraksin Dvor for best prices

Apraksin Dvor for best prices
Apraksin Dvor Large shopping zone

A bit rougher shopping zone on Sadovaya Street hs long been the place to go for better prices. Many foreign vendors. Watch out for unscrupulous characters and guard your wallet. Not recommended for the tourist to go alone.
A misture of indoor shops and outside bazaar. You can get lost in the maze of shops.

Built in the 1700s of wood buildings, it burned in1782.

it was rebuilt in 1863 with a desing by Geronimo Corsini. This design exists today and is under constant renovation.
There are probably 1000 shops there now.
Clothing, shoes, hats and most anything :)

Haggle for bargains, watch your pockets!

Address: Sadovaya Street
Directions: 2 blocks west of Nevsky on Sadovaya Street. Between Sadovaya and Fontanka River.
