It is named after one of the city’s original seven hills and is the home of the world famous Lombard Street, also known as the “world’s crookedest street.” Russian Hill is known for its gorgeous sweeping views and the steepness of the hill’s grade which forced the development of the switchbacks that Lombard Street is known for. Views include, both the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay Bridge as well as Alcatraz and the Bay itself. Russian Hill is uphill from Fisherman’s Wharf and is also bordered by the neighborhoods of Nob Hill, North Beach, the Marina District and more.
