What to wear in July?

by windmilljumper

We will be in St Petersberg for the first two weeks in July. We are bringing only a small carry on because we are using the trains and busses. What type of clothes should we pack. Looks like temp in 70 degree range. Are shorts appropriate? We would like to "fit in" but still we won't have much choice on what we can bring. Any suggestions?

Re: What to wear in July?

Shorts is OK to walk, visit Hermitage, but not Mariinsky ballet.
It may be occured as low as +16 C with rain, so be prepared to walk fast.
It would't be wise to carry heavy things.

Our weather is very changeable and absolutely unpredictable. However, the beginning of July is usually the hottest time of the year.

Travel Tips for Saint Petersburg

Quo Vadis Internet Café

by sue_stone

There are a few internet cafes around the Nevsky Prospekt area in St Petersburg. The one we went to (as it was closest to our hotel) was called Quo Vadis.

Price for internet access varies depending on the time of day and the length of time you require. Open 24 hours a day, this large place has load of internet terminals and a ‘Book Café’ with drinks & snacks.

There are also clean toilets, always a bonus!

Little Details

by Canadienne

For our first day in St. Petersburg, I had arranged a two-hour guided oriention (by car) to the city. In our jet-lagged state, it turned out to be a good introduction. . .but we quickly came to the conclusion that the best way to explore the city would be by foot. A tour by car, bus, or even one that relies heavily on the metro, would mean missing out on all the little details that can be found throughout St. Petersburg.

We found beauty and charm everywhere in the city ~ from grand palaces to scrolling woodwork in doorways. . .

Holiday: Maslenitsa- pancake week

by sennaya

Blini Festival week is the week before Lent, seven weeks before Easter.
In ancient times it was the festival to say goodbye to Winter and hello to the sun.
The round blini pancake represents the sun.
The last Sunday of the festival is forgiveness day where all is forgiven and redeemed.
And the Lady Maslenitsa effigy is burned to say goodbye to Winter.

In southern europe it is the time of carnival, in Catholic traditions it is Shrovetide.

Just be sure and eat lots of warm tasty blini!

Northen Venice

by Klod5

Saint-Pétersbourg se situe dans le nord-ouest de la partie européenne de la Russie, à l'embouchure de la Néva, issue du lac Ladoga, sur la mer Baltique.
Cette localisation entraîne quelques contraintes climatiques: en été, des températures jusqu'à 30 degrés ne sont pas rares, chassant les Pétersbourgeois vers leurs datchas, tandis qu'en hiver le thermomètre peut descendre jusqu'à moins 30 degrés, recouvrant les rues de neige et les eaux d'une épaisse couche de glace, ce qui apporte à la ville une atmosphère si particulière que décrit l'écrivain Iossif Brodski en 1985:
"Au cœur de l'hiver, les palais et les hôtels se profilent au-dessus du fleuve gelé, dans leurs parures et leurs châles de neige, tels de vieux dignitaires de l'Empire, enfouis jusqu'aux sourcils dans d'épaisses pelisses. Quand la boule pourpre du soleil couchant de janvier teint leurs hautes fenêtres vénitiennes de son or liquide, le piéton transi qui traverse le pont voit soudain ce que Pierre [le Grand] avait en tête lorsqu'il érigeait ses murs : le miroir géant d'une planète solitaire. Exhalant une buée légère, il ressent presque de la pitié pour ces colonnes nues, avec leurs coiffures doriques, emprisonnées dans ce froid sans merci, enfoncées dans cette neige qui leurs montent jusqu'aux genoux."


St-Petersbourg is located in the northwest of the European part of Russia, to the mouth of the Neva, exit of the Ladoga lake, on the Baltic sea.
This localization entails some climatic constraints: in summer, temperatures until 30 degrees are not rare, hunting the inhabitants of Petersbourg toward their datchas, while in winter the thermometer can take down until less 30 degrees, regaining the streets of snow and the waters of a thick layer of ice, what brings to the city an atmosphere so particular that writer Iossif Brodski describes in 1985...

Alexander Nevsky Lavra ~ Tikhvin Cemetery

by Canadienne

Inside the lavra entrance, on the right-hand side, is the Tikhvin Cemetery. It was founded in 1823 and many famous Russian writers, composers and artists have since been buried in it ~ Ivan Krylov, Feodor Dostoyevsky, Mikhail Glinka, Alexandre Borodin and Pyotr Tchaikovsky included.

There is a map inside the cemetery entrance, but all of the names are in cyrillic (even being able to read it, finding recognizable names in the list of 100+ was too time-consuming). A better approach is to simply walk through the grounds and admire the tombstones ~ the most famous have small stands with transcribed names next to them and others are simply enjoyable for the art.

There is supposed to be a small entrance fee, but it was waived during our visit (a Sunday).
