    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: SPB is quite rainy place and when it rains is lasts long. Especially if you are visiting during spring or autumun, an umbrella is strongly recommended. It rains heavily and sometimes non-stop few days.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: if you decide to go to SPb in a spring or a autumn don't forget to take an umbrella and a raincoat or something like this.. The weather hear can be very different. Also there is chance that rain will be some days without any stops :\

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: As I've said, St. Petersburg is a city made for walking. Just be sure to bring your umbrella, and carry it with you when you go out, as unexpected showers will probably strike. Comfortable shoes are also a must.

    Umbrella, Umbrella and one more time Umbrella

    by eVg Written Nov 12, 2003

    Luggage and bags: Other then all the stuff you need to travel, make sure you take plenty of clothing that you would feel comfortable wearing when it rains. Ok..it might not be as bad as London, (or maybe it is i never went there yet)...But it rains all through the air and gets really wet during the fall. Most of the snow melts as well, creating lots of sleet and puddles, so be prepared.

    Umbrella is a must

    by Siil Written Feb 25, 2003

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you want to survive and enjoy the the city you must take a umbrella or a rain coat. It rains a lot around here so be prepaired. In spring, summer and autnum its rain that comes town so in winter it is snow ;-)

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: If you ar going to a public toilet then you have to pay. But you can always use toilets in caffes and restaurants as there they are in better condition

    Photo Equipment: if you are planning to take pictures then don't worry you can buy film almoast everywhere.

    Packing List

    Luggage and bags: WHAT TO BRING
    A collapsible umbrella that opens automatically is essential. A good raincoat (with liner) will be useful from March to October. It can get chilly in summer, so a sweater and/or
    wind breaker is useful, especially for evenings. Something much warmer is needed from November to February. A good warm top coat, fur coat, or down ski parka with scarf, gloves, a ski or fur hat and warm zip-up boots (in dark brown or black for men) will be necessary. Note that the interiors of most buildings are usually well heated. Dress in layers.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The day started out bright and sunny when I went to see Petrodvorets however it did rain and it rained hard. Good thing I had an umbrella and would advise you to bring one along just in case.

    Photo Equipment: I brought along a DV video camera as well as a still camera. Expect to pay an useage fee for both cameras at any of the major attractions.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring an umbrella... it rains quite a bit... sometimes heavily! Good walking shoes are a must, too.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Make sure you have any prescriptions you need... in fact have a back-up supply handy. Certain medicines are difficult to get. Get a hepatitis A shot before going, too. Make sure and carry stuff for your stomach in case you happen to eat or drink something that makes you sick.

    Miscellaneous: Make sure and safeguard your visa, passport and money...use money belts!
