is a truly magical time bringing the romantic White Nights. Midsummer brings the city 24-hour daylight. Summer generally runs from the beginning of June to the end of August. Temperatures usually reach 68 F. Summers can be hot and humid to cool and cloudy, so bring a variety of clothing from shorts and short-sleeve shirts for warmer days to jeans, pants, sweaters, and light jackets for cooler days and evenings. Don't forget a raincoat or umbrella for the occasional rainy day! A sunny morning often leads to a rainy afternoon and visa versa. You'll also want to bring a lighter and more comfortable footwear for walking around the city's sights and attractions and traveling to the suburban parks and palaces. It a good idea to bring a backpack or carrying case to stash your souvenirs and other purchases as you travel. Of course, a light hat and sunglasses to protect you from the sun's rays will also serve you well during summertime in the Venice of the North. Summer in St. Petersburg
The network of public transportation in St. Petersburg is quite extensive. The resources of public transportation are quite over- stretched, and most public transport is not particularly user- friendly. Nonetheless, the metro is a very reliable and cost-effective way of medium and long-distance transportation. Although not as extensive or extravagant as Moscow's Metro, the St. Petersburg Metro leaves most other metro systems in the dust, and is a very popular form of transport in the Northern Capital. The system contains four lines and more than 50 stations and is the deepest subway in the world. It is also good for journeys within the downtown area. For the shorter trips you are more likely to use trams, buses and trolleybuses, or taxis. You can also walk to nearby places. Less than $40 per dayTransportation
