Travel Secrets Serbia Correspondent Anna Rostokina reports:

“One of the greatest Russian marvels, Saint Petersburg is at its best in summer, when the sun dominates the usually rainy city providing for enjoyable walks and boat rides.

Saint Petersburg

June is the famous “white night” season. In summer in this part of Europe the sun does not descend below the horizon enough for the sky to grow dark, so it is basically a no-night period. This natural phenomenon has inspired great writers such as Fyodor Dostoevsky, but more importantly it inspires millions of citizens and tourists to literally explore this vibrant city 24/7.”
