Liteiny-Smolny

This region lies to the northeast of Vladimirskaya and includes the Smolny cathedral. The Kirov Islands (north of the city), the Southern Suburbs, and the Vyborg Side (in the northeast corner of the city) have just a few sights. Luckily, that gives visitors to this neighborhood less of a touristy experience and more of a unique taste of Russian life, including interesting music venues and funky shops.
