Best Time To Visit St petersburg

Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination

Russia is well-known for its winters. In fact, the Russian winter is one of the main reasons why they won multiples wars in their homeland. Thus, the best time to visit St Petersburg is the summer. July and August are the hottest months in St Pete’s and also the longest hours of sunshine. The city stays lit for almost 24 hours before and after the equinox date – the famous St Pete’s phenomena called White Nights.

December-February (4°C to 8°C)"

From September, the temperature starts to drop again. St Petersburg weather in October is the last you can visit without getting potential frostbite. From late-October till almost the middle of April, the temperature in St Petersburg stays well below the freezing point. January is the coldest month, with an average minimum of -11°C.  St Petersburg weather in December is quite harsh considering the winters have started and would become at its peak during the month of January.

March-May (22°C to 25°C) 

Being further up north than Moscow, winter does not leave St Petersburg till at least mid-April. The sun starts to shine from late April and finally gets up and about in May. It makes a lot of difference only in one month, as April sees an average temperature of 1°-8°C, while the temperature in St Petersburg in Russia during May it is 7°C-16°C. The weather in St Petersburg in May is quite pleasant. This is when the spring is fading to make way for the summers.

 June-August (11°C to 21°C)

June to August is the peak tourist season and for the right reasons. Being near the Arctic Circle, the sun in St Petersburg does not really set from mid-June to the beginning of July. The star disappears from the sky, but a white light remains till midnight at least before the sun rises again at 4am. This is a very famous event in St Petersburg and is celebrated as the White Nights. It gives you much longer hours to complete your sightseeing. Shops remain open till late at night as well. Weather in St Petersburg in June, with a heat of around 11°-20°C is the most pleasant for a visit. St Petersburg weather in July-August are the hottest in the Russian standards, but you won’t feel a thing if you are a resident of a tropical country.

The last ten days of June fill the city with global opera singers, ballet dancers, and musicians. There are fireworks over the Neva River, and carnivals keep the folks and tourists busy in the festivities.

    Namita's 10 days trip to St Petersburg

    Few tips to take care while planning a trip to travel agent: 1. Check all the hotels as I got the first hotel changed and was better then the other two. 2. Check on the luggage as how much one is allowed to carry as should have been told by the travel agents if the flight inside the country will be domestic and luggage will be a problem. Had to pay 2700 rubbles extra. Then cabs booked for excursion we paid 300 rubbles for the parking which should be borne by the agents. The agents arranged the timely cabs for pick and drop. Rest all the other things has to be managed self.. I felt that arranging the trips are far better than doing through the agents.. Saint Petersburg was one of the best place to see in the entire Russia..

    Priyanka Tomar

    Delhi

    Priyanka's 7 days trip to St Petersburg

    Overall it was a good trip. Due to language issue, we were not able to interact much with Cab drivers in Moscow. Also traffic in Moscow is really bad, which was one of the pain points for us. Stay in petersburg was a memorable one. The cab driver was a Pakistani so no language issue. Though the hotel was small, but hotel staff was very friendly and cooperative. Stay in Petersburg will always be in our good books (from cab driver to hotel staff and food).

    Gadi Ramakrishna

    Hyderabad

    Gadi's 6 days trip to St Petersburg

    The hotels selected in St. Petersburg needs to be changed.its in the centre of city, but has no elevator & rooms are on the 4 th floor.real inconvenience to tourists. The overall package value is a little high when compared to the places of visit proposed, couls have more additional fight seeing trips. indian food could have been organised / complimented atleast for one day in both the cities. Night cruise on Moscow river.

    FAQ's of St Petersburg

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    The summer months are the ideal ones to visit St Petersburg. From May to August, the temperature stays comfortable and warm enough.

    St Petersburg used to be the royal capital during the Tsar regime. Later during World War II, the city was under a 900-day blockade, famously known as the Siege of Leningrad.

    From mid-June to July, St Petersburg experiences nights with a strange white light lingering long after the sun sets, which gave birth to the moniker White Nights. The last ten days of June is celebrated as the White Nights Festival, with lots of dance, music, theatre, and opera.

    There are frequent flights of 1.5 hours duration between the cities. However, the train is often the more preferred mode. Sapsan train is a comfortable and convenient one, while Grand Express or Red Arrow is there if you want luxury trains.

    St Petersburg winters are cold and freezing throughout. January is the coldest month with an average minimum temperature of -11°C.
