Dumskaya street in St. Petersburg has a relatively small length. Starting at Nevsky Prospekt, it lasts to Lomonosov Street. Initially, its name was "Living Room", because nearby there was (and still is) the Gostiny Dvor. And only from the second half of the 18th century the name of the street was changed. For the renaming became the impetus of the fact that the merchant guild of the city created the city government body - the City Duma. Especially for her erected a new building at the then still Gostinaya street. The Duma divided it into two parts. One of them was named - Dumskaya.
Dumskaya is the street of St. Petersburg, which has recently become a kind of cult place in the city. The townspeople call it the "street of bars". Unsurprisingly, there are no more drinking establishments per square meter anywhere else in the city!
Not so long ago, Duma Street could be closed for reconstruction. In this case, of course, all bars and clubs would be temporarily inaccessible. But the decision to reconstruct was never made, and the "bar" street continues to amuse St. Petersburg.
The cuisine in the bars does not surprise with its variety and amazes with the cost. Young people here do not really eat. Come here to drink and dance. If you really wanted to, you can eat nuts or pistachios. Particularly hungry do not hesitate to run to the store "Food", which "hides" the Duma street between the bars "Fidel" and "Belgrade", or to drop for khachapuri in the only cheap "eatery" here.
From midnight to two o'clock in the morning - the most "carbon monoxide" clock on Dumskaya. Alcohol flows like a river, dances are on tables, smoke is a yoke. Dance floors as such in most establishments are not provided for, so young people "circle" where they find their place. And here it looks pretty harmonious.
