A Figment of Someone's Imagination

After driving under the arch, Bond finds himself in a former Rolls Royce factory near Leavesden Airfield where Galernaya Street was custom-built for him.

Quazi-Galernaya Street

The real street is short and narrow, it runs in parallel to Neva and not across it, so it doesn't end with such a spectacular view. What we see in the film does look a lot like a street of St. Petersburg and may have been filmed there if not for the cathedral in the background - it doesn't exist. It'll make another apearance later, in two different places.

The building Ourumov chooses for his escape looks a lot like one of buildings on the street, only the real one has a different number.
