White nights

Romance in St. Petersburg

This is the time from mid May to the end of August, when you can read the newspaper on the street at 3 o’clock in the morning. When there are more boats in the Neva river, than people on the streets. Do all the musts during the day time, like visiting Hermitage and Petergoff. Have a private “White Nights “boat tour after midnight. Do like the locals do - whistle under the bridges and sing. The widest one is 90 meters – it should be a long whistle. Visit the most elegant Pavlovsk palace, the only one were the spirit of the imperial family is still in the air.

  Highlights

◊ Hermitage Museum

◊ Petergoff

◊ Pavlovsk Palace
