Voznesensky Prospekt (Russian: Вознесенский проспект) is a 1.8 km long street in Admiralteysky District of Saint Petersburg, Russia. Crossing Saint Isaac's Square, the Moika (Blue Bridge) and Griboyedov Canal (Voznesensky Bridge), the street spans from Admiralteysky Prospekt to Izmaylovsky Bridge across Fontanka, where it turns into Izmaylovsky Prospekt. According to the city plan of 1737, the center of Saint Petersburg should develop along three radial axes meeting at the Admiralty's spire: Nevsky Prospekt, Gorokhovaya Street and Voznesensky Prospekt. In 1923-1991 the street was named Mayorov Prospekt (Проспект Майорова) after a prominent Bolshevik killed in the Russian Civil War.
