Night city tours
Uncover the mysteries of the Hermitage Museum after midnight. Stop at the banks of the river Neva to watch the illuminated drawbridges make way for the night-time navigation. Marvel at the majesty of the city centre’s floodlight squares and palaces as you learn about their history. Nothing brings out the beauty of St Petersburg’s UNESCO-listed architecture than a guided after-dark tour, when nights falls and its shimmering lights come up. In the summer months, tour-goers will see St Petersburg on a mesmeric “white night” – when the city stays in twilight from dusk to dawn.
