Eliseevsky store situated right on the Nevsky prospekt is definately the most beautiful grocery store you have ever seen. It was built in the beginning of the 20th century in art deco style for wealthy merchants, Eliseev brothers. The amazing interiors of Eliseevsky have recently been restored and now you can marvel at their beauty. Originally Eliseevsky store specialized in colonial produce, today the range of goods changed but you still can see various delicacies. Eliseevsky store is really famous in Russia and many citizens and tourists buy something there to remember St Petersburg in spite of the high prices. As for me, I would rather sit in a cafeteria inside and enjoy the charm and atmosphere of the beginning of the 20th century.
