St Petersburg's famous White Nights, which lasts from the end of May until Mid-July, are a truly legendary experience. Because of St Petersburg's northern location, the sun does not fully set and the city never truly reaches night.

This is when the city nightlife is at its most active and there are also a number of festivals and events.
