The historic Passage, a timeless building, has long awaited renovation. The dynamic rhythm of modern life now harmoniously blends in with the atmosphere of the historic St. Petersburg in the new concept of Passage. It has a 180-meter long glass roof, easy jazz tunes flow through the arcade and the luxurious interior is somewhat similar to Moscow’s legendary GUM (though on a much smaller scale). The renovation project is not yet fully complete and not all new tenants have yet been confirmed, but at the present day there is already a nice mix of international and Russian fashion, beauty, jewellery and souvenirs. There’s an enormous Rive Gauche cosmetics store with popular beauty brands as well as more niche ones. In terms of food and drink there’s only a Movenpick stand and a Costa Express but that doesn’t matter when in the heart of Nevsky Prospekt with all its cafes and restaurants.
