Enjoyable and easy with a private guide
Located at the 59th parallel North, the same as Alaska, St-Petersburg usually gets rather short summer and very long and dark winter. Indeed, when locals only see a handful of sunny and warm days in late spring, "the endless winter" becomes their major complaint.
However, the location of the city does have benefits - if you like snow, skating and skiing in winter and never-ending days in summer. During the so-called "white nights" the Sun is visible for almost 19 hrs a day and it never gets dark. The White nights are what people first think when they talk about St-Petersburg.
During this period it's common for kids and adults to rush outside to greedily grasp each ray of the Sun and feverishly compensate for everything they were denied in winter.
We will not to be an exception and spend the whole day outdoors, having walking tour - to see breathtaking views of majestic monuments, then riding a boat to observe the city from the water angle and just having an enjoyable and easy summer time in St-Petersburg.
