Full description
This excursion combines a sightseeing drive to those landmarks of the city which become more fascinating as the night progresses. You will encounter many of the gorgeous palaces and squares of Saint-Petersburg at night. In peak summertime you have the opportunity to enjoy the romantics of the "white nights", observing the opening of the numerous drawbridges. During white nights, when a faint twilight takes the place of night darkness, the streets, squares, and embankments acquire a unique charm. Though the period of white nights is short and comes to an end in July, it doesn't mean that the charm of St. Petersburg's night disappears. This water-dominated city still offers its guests many opportunities to embrace and experience its beauty.
