    White Nights (Beliye Nochi)

    by HORSCHECK Updated Sep 19, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    St. Petersburg is the world's only city with a population over 1 million which has the effect of the White Nights (Beliye Nochi).

    From about June 11th to July 2nd the sun does not go under the horizon deep enough to get real darkness. So on warm and clear days the nightlife happens outside, mainly along the Neva embankment.

    I was in St. Petersburg when the High School graduates got their diplomas (June 22nd). In this night Nevsky Prospekt was closed for traffic and filled with pupils celebrating their summer breaks.

    Leningrad: Good Russian band

    by LarisaLove Written Sep 2, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    (Ленинград in Russian) is a Russian ska punk band from Saint Petersburg (formerly Leningrad).

    Composed of 14 members, the band appeared in the late 1990s around singer Sergey "Shnur" Shnurov (Сергей Шнуров). It soon became famous for its vulgar lyrics (see Russian mat), the main reason it was avoided by most radio stations at first. But this did not stop its growing popularity. As Shnurov said himself: "Our songs are just about the good sides of life, vodka and girls that is." The band is known to be disliked by Moscow mayor Yuri Mikhailovich Luzhkov, who cancelled many of their concerts in the city. But since then, the band has made its way to radio and TV (filler noises covering the rude words, certain songs containing many of these filler noises), with Shnurov even presenting some New Year's Eve TV shows.

    Leningrad has gained some popularity in other parts of the world. Partially due to a well known Adobe Flash animation, created by Toondra, set to their song "Menya Zovut Shnur" (Russian: «Меня зовут Шнур») or "My Name is Shnur" in English.

    Nikolaevsky IV: Traditional Russian songs

    by Sininen Updated Apr 1, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The dance group was followed by a balalaika quartet, who played the traditional Russian songs like "Kalinka" and "Black eyes". They were very good, too. The last performance was given by another dancing group, who had some singers with them, too, and they were excellent, too. The ladies of the group came off the stage and asked some men to come and dance with them on the stage. It was so funny to look at them and a girl friend of one of the men laughed madly at her boy friend. I love Russian folk songs and we all really enjoyed the show very much. Though it lasted for two hours it was too short and we would have loved to see more of the dances still. We took a trolley back to the hotel and it was another experience with my sister, but everything went well.

    Nikolaevsky III: We laughed till we cried

    by Sininen Written Apr 1, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Then there was a funny eskimo dance. Two fluffy eskimos dancing clumsily. It seemed like they were about to fall from the stage any minute. The audience was giggling and bursted into laugh, when the eskimos "fell" on my sister and her partner's laps. It was so funny that the tears were falling down our cheeks. The eskimos turned out to be the very same young man, who asked me to take his photo. He was so really good indeed.

    Nikolaevsky II: Colourful dancing

    They were followed by a dancing group, which was excellent. You should have seen the men dancing trepak! We were sitting in the first row and when they saw I had a camera one of the man dancers showed that I should take a photo of him, which I also did.
