White Nights Festival / Scarlet Sails | St.Petersburg | Russia

Although the phenomenon known as the “White Nights” is not unique to St Petersburg, in no other northern city have they received such poetic and literary acclaim. What could be more romantic than a walk along the banks of the city’s rivers and canals in almost broad daylight, no matter what the time of day?

the White Nights, normally lasting from June 11th to July 2nd. The White Nights (Beliye Nochi) are a curious phenomenon caused by St. Petersburg’s very northerly geographical location – at 59 degrees 57′ North (roughly on  the same latitude as Oslo, Norway, the southern tip of Greenland and Seward, Alaska).

The night becomes curiously indistinguishable from day

St. Petersburg is the world’s most northern city with a population over 1 million, and its stands at such a high latitude that the sun does not descend below the horizon enough for the sky to grow dark. In fact night becomes curiously indistinguishable from day, so much so that the authorities never need to turn the city’s streetlights on!
