Basically, it's almost as light outside as it is during the day.

Also, check out Peter's Palaces (Petergoff in German) - the palace complex of Peter The Great outside of the city itself - it's huge and has more fountains (and in different formations) than pretty much any other place on Earth. Even the proud and chauvinistic French have called it the Russian Versailles.
Thanks for the great info. I'll be sure to do that if I'm ever able to make it there.

I'd really love to do a Scandinavian trek and work my way from Iceland to St Petersburgh in like 3 weeks or a month.
