St. Petersburg is the place miracles are made.

But St. Petersburg is also the site of some of the most pivotal moments in Russia’s history, most notably the Siege of Leningrad. Many inhabitants of the city have a family member who lived through the siege and it is still remembered vividly, though the city has prevailed and lived to tell its story.

One of the most awesome spectacles you can see once you’ve stepped off a flight to St. Petersburg are the “white nights” that occur in the city in the summer. Find cheap flights to St. Petersburg in June and July and watch in awe as the city glows from the prolonged twilight.

Best Time to Fly to St Petersburg

Peak Season: June, July, and August are the most popular months to book St. Petersburg flights due to its pleasant and warm weather. Typically mid 60’s, it’s not your average scorching summer, reaching maximums in the low 70’s. August brings heavy humidity and rain along with the heat, so over-packers should focus on weather-specific clothing like rain boots, umbrellas, and versatile layers.

Off-peak Season: Ready to brave the cold? A flight to St. Petersburg in the winter will release you into a land so frigid that typically temperatures can bottom out even lower than 10 degrees. Icy winds and weighty snowfall make January and February the bitterest months. If you’re looking to save money and the cold weather doesn’t bother you, this is the best time to find cheap flights to St. Petersburg.

Getting around St Petersburg

Head out on foot to best experience Saint Petersburg’s sights and architecture. There are plenty of public transportation options for those who don’t feel like walking. You can still get great views of the city by taking a cruise on the Neva River. The metro is a very popular option for both residents and tourists. It’s cheap and fast, but can get very crowded during the day. Buy your tokens or multiple-trip tickets at the station. You can also ride a bus, tram or trolley car. Buses cover the areas the subway doesn’t. Trolleys are the slowest option. Purchase tickets for any of these from the drivers or at kiosks beforehand. Make sure you validate them when boarding. Marshrutky are minibus shuttles that you can flag down on the bus route. Pay the driver and request a stop when you get to your destination. There are also plenty of taxis, which are inexpensive as well. Private cars often act as non-metered taxis, so negotiate a fare before you get in. Avoid driving yourself if you can. Roads are often in disrepair, traffic is congested and street signs are in Cyrillic.
