White Nights is a fascinating phenomenon in St. Petersburg in summer. During these few days, the Sun does not go down completely, so the dusk smoothly turns into dawn. It does not get dark in the nighttime, and one cannot see the sky full of stars, which, however, makes this time of the year even more romantic and special.
