August in St Petersburg- good time to go.

Jump to last reply

I am looking to plan a trip to St Petersburg and to take advantage of the UK bank holiday we are thinking of going late August. I did read thought that ( similar to Paris) the locals leave and some of the "cultural experiences take a summer break. ( I know the Marinsky is closed until Sept 16) that said does anyone know if it still a good time to visit?

We are planning on 3 nights/ 3 days .

Your advice ( and any tips you may have) would be appreciated.

:)
