Each year at the start of spring, St Petersburg enjoys 50 days when the sun barely sets, thus offering long, pleasant days. This unusual natural phenomenon called the Summer Solstice is explained by the geographical position of St Petersburg which is situated on the 60th parallel.

You will therefore be able to enjoy jazz concerts, open air rock concerts, classical music events in the theatres and castles of the city … There is something for all ages and all tastes; the town is on fire! The White Nights of St Petersburg is the main event in the country and encourages indescribable moments thanks to this rather unusual atmosphere.

Theatre plays, dance shows, carnivals, firework displays, sea battles … you won't have any peace!
