As I mentioned in my last post, since we were visiting a friend, we stayed at her suburban flat in Fruktavaya Street which is not the usual tourist stop and hence made the use of metro to reach to most of the tourist destinations.Using the metro could be a little tricky as there is hardly any signage in English, so would suggest to downloada Metro map which has stations name both in English and Russian and keep it as a print or as an image on your smart phone.
Use google maps before hand and get accustomed to the routes and the metro station's names.
The nearest stations to us were Nakhimovsky Prospect and Varhsavskaya which were both well connected to all the touristy spots.
