June is the best time to visit St. Petersburg and enjoy world famous White Nights. No other major European city can rival this experience and the atmosphere on the streets of St. Petersburg during White Nights - lively, friendly, romantic and bustling with people throughout the night as well as the day.

From late May to early July the nights are bright in St. Petersburg, with the brightest period, the White Nights, normally lasting from June 11th to July 2nd. The White Nights is a natural phenomenon caused by St. Petersburg's unique geographical location - at 59 degrees 57' North (about the same latitude as Oslo, Norway, the southern tip of Greenland and Seward, Alaska). Therefore, the sun does not descend below the horizon enough for the sky to grow dark. The White Nights are also the inspiration behind St. Petersburg most famous cultural event, 'The Stars of the White Nights Festival', in which the worlds finest musicians, opera singers and ballet dancers take part.

The availability of very reasonably priced hotels will make your visit cost-effective, while magnificent St. Petersburg will make your stay an unforgettable experience!
