Saint Petersburg is the city of White Nights. Unfortunately they only last a short time, usually from June to beginning of July. Already starting from May the nights are bright. But the brightest period starts in June. Beliye Nochi is caused by northerly geographical location of the city.

It is truly romantic to walk along the banks of the city's rivers and canals in almost broad daylight any time of the day. International arts festival, the white nights, is organized during this season. Saint Petersburg is especially fascinating by night at this time of the year.
