Biography/HistoryGostiny Dvor, a department store built between 1757 and 1785, with over 100 individual shops taking up over 164, 000 square feet. It is reputed to be one of the first shopping malls.
Nevsky Prospekt, the main avenue and most famous street in St. Petersburg, was planned by French Architect, Alexander Jean Baptiste LeBlond, while in the employ of Peter the Great. Originally called the Great Prospect Road when work was begun in approximately 1718, it is reputed that in 1721 and 1777 the road was navigable only by boat due to flooding. Named after Alexander Nevsky, the 13th century national hero who is credited with defeating separate Swedish and German invading armies, it runs from the Admiralty (now a naval college) to Nevsky Monastery.
