The high tourist season is from mid-May to the end of August with a peak between mid-June and mid-July, during the Nuits blanches. Hotels are full and prices are rising. The rest of the year can be considered as the low season, with the exception of the first 10 days of January when the Russians celebrate Christmas and New Year with their families. Winter temperatures are far from the Siberian cold, but the climate of St. Petersburg remains marked by the humidity of the Baltic Sea. The sidewalks are then transformed into an ice rink or a.... children's pool. Clothes close to your body, a good windproof jacket, waterproof shoes... and you're ready to walk through the city in the snow. Here as elsewhere there is no more climate. Snow is sometimes slow to come and the sun can sulk in summer. A quick look at the local weather can help avoid disappointments. The people of Petersburg have a joke that reflects the region's very changing climate: "If you don't like today's weather, wait 15 minutes. "»
