A Relaxing, Inviting Neighborhood
Hyde and Broadway
San Francisco, CA 94123
Russian Hill, a lower-key cousin of its swank neighbor Nob Hill, is a pleasant residential neighborhood spotted with restaurants and shops perfect for a relaxed sojourn after visiting San Francisco's more crowded neighborhoods. Russian Hill was named in the 1850s as pioneers found several mysterious tombstones bearing Cyrillic inscriptions; no consensus was reached as to where they had come from, and the Russian influence never outlived these tablets. A French Quarter feel has taken over a corner of the neighborhood where baguettes can be purchased in a variety of authentic bistros and bakeries. Russian Hill is accessible from the Powell-Mason cable car line and from Fisherman's Wharf.
