only person who seems racist is you.
Russia is not a good country to visit and Russian people are not a good people to be treated with them.
Whoever wants winter tourism instead of visiting Russia, he will visit Finland or Norway. Helsinki and Oslo are much better than all of Russia.
Russia is a country mired in poverty, corruption and racism, and its people are selfish, barbaric and thirsty for bloodshed.
Muggings happen all the time, no matter if it's daytime or night time. if you don't take precautions and are not alert all the time then you can become a victim of a mugging or robbery etc. And moreover the passersby won't help you either.
Another thing is that this city is full of skinhead Nazi gangs which comprises of mostly youth punks who also do drugs etc. It's very ironic that the city which faced the horrendous attack and siege during the Second World War by the Nazis, today in that city gangs of skinhead youth are roaming freely idealising the same ideology of Adolf Hitler. And this is not restricted to just this city. This is prevalent in all over Russia, and people and the Government do nothing to stop it.
So if you belong to an Asian country or an African one then be careful while visiting this city or Russia overall.
Police is SUPER corrupt and inefficient here and if you are a foreigner and approach a policeman for help he won't help you, unless you are an American or a European Citizen of white skin, and if you hold a European passport or an American passport but your skin colour is dark, then forget that you'll get any help from the Police unless you first involve your embassy in the matter.
I've read all the comments and I wonder why some people who have lived in Russia for many years and are still living here, are so naively claiming that this city is safe??? The purpose of this forum is to provide the true information and give a clear picture to the coming visitors so that they can stay safe while enjoying the beauty of this city.
By my opinion this route is not dangerous. But of course places near Nevsky pr. especially where bars and you're too drunk...Will better if near been sober friends)
