My friend Karen had folks from DC in town last May, and I was in Moscow from Yekaterinburg for a Fulbright committee meeting. We went to St. Petersburg over the weekend in late May about a month before the Summer Solstice. The pics in the middle are from our midnight cruise. The light was incredible at 1AM.
We also took a fantastic walking tour around St Pete's with Peter's. I highly recommend them. There's a pic of our guide and owner, Peter, who has traveled all over the world. His favorite place to visit is Niger, where Elizabeth was a Peace Corps volunteer. He's a graduate of the film school which we walked by.
