Friends, we love St. Petersburg very much and never tire of telling us that each season of the year the Northern Capital gives guests and tourists something special. We talk about five main reasons to visit St. Petersburg in the winter:
Who cares what the weather outside is when you wander around the Hermitage or the Russian Museum? So you can avoid the queues at the box office of the main exhibition spaces. Perhaps many will be able to enjoy the masterpieces of Aivazovsky almost alone for the first time.
After that, you can get acquainted with the bar culture of the city, sung by tourists and journalists, not afraid to be late for bridges.
Free entry to suburban parks
Admission becomes free, for example, in Peterhof and the Catherine Park in Pushkin. Let the flowers not bloom there and the fountains do not work, but the parks are still very beautiful.
Now more than 180 theaters are opened in St. Petersburg, outstanding directors and actors work, the most high-profile ballet, opera and theater productions of classical and modern authors are held, well-known and beloved not only in Russia but also abroad.
Winter decoration of city attractions
In summer you certainly will not see the Palace or the beach of the Peter and Paul Fortress covered with white carpet. Walking in such places filled with an atmosphere of magic will give a lot of positive emotions.
