BEST TIME TO VISIT Saint Petersburg

The best time to visit St Petersburg is between the summer months of June to September when you can witness 24 hours of near sunshine. The city is known for its unique White Nights – long summer days when the sun doesn’t set at all. This is peak tourist season in Saint Peterburg so you may have to book it way in advance for better rates! The temperature is really pleasant around this time, hovering between 12 - 20°C.

The city comes to life around the spring season in May. The parks are filled with blossoming flowers and the trees have vibrant, new leaves.
