Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hey guys! I need to import spatial data via oracle map builder of only one city - st. Petersburg for my bachelor's thesis in shapefile format. I need to have BOUNDARY_POLYGON, BUILDING_POLYGON, and HIGHWAY_LINE files. Could you please tell me how to get these files?

I'm not sure if this provides boundary polygons, but bbbike does provide simple shapefile extracts for given areas: e.g., St Petersburg. The shapefiles are likely missing many OSM tags.

The alternative is to use overpass(-turbo) to extract the layers you want as geojson, and convert to .SHP with ogr2ogr.
