Tour of Saint-Petersburg — the City of White Nights

With the architectural ensemble the Vasilevsky Island Spit, the golden spire of the Peter and Paul Fortress and the snow-white columns and strong, sculpted gods decorating the Old St. Petersburg Stock Exchange, St. Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Everyone who visits the city sees it in their own unique way. A weekend in the city can be spent in many different ways – devoted to the study of Russian architecture or history or to a fun celebration and adventure away from home. This is especially true in the summer during the white nights when it seems that St. Petersburg and its visitors never sleep and are taking part in an endless series of parties, festivals and concerts.
