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.

You can get a lovely walk by Svetlanskaya st., just make sure to get ready to be disappointed by all the idiotic ads on beautiful historical buildings. I'd also recommend to wear a mask because the exhaust produced by cars here is particularly terrible.
