Sadovaya Street is one of the central streets of St. Petersburg
It passes through the historical center of the city from the first Garden Bridge across the Moika River, near the Field of Mars to the junction of the Griboedov canal and Fontanka river, along the territory of two islands of the Neva river delta: Spassky island (from the Moika River to the Kryukov canal) and Pokrovsky island (from the Kryukov canal to the junction of the Griboedov canal and Fontanka river). In the alignment of the street across the Kryukov canal is located the Old Nikolsky Bridge. The section from Moika River to Gorokhovaya Street refers to the Central district of the city, the rest part – to the Admiralteysky district. The length of the street is 4376 m (comparable in length to the Nevsky Prospekt, which it crosses), the width of the roadway is about 8 metres, and the distance between the houses is 18 metres.
The street has a great cultural and historical significance – many historical and architectural monuments of the XVIII-XX centuries, including the Mikhailovsky castle, the Vorontsov Palace, the Gostiny Dvor, the Yusupov Palace are situated here. In addition, this street has important transportation functions, linking the central districts of the city with each other.
