Get closer to the Midnight Sun

Get closer to the Midnight Sun

The former capital of Russia and home to many of its grandest imperial palaces, St Petersburg is widely regarded as the most beautiful city in the world's largest country. From the delights of Peterhof and Pushkin, to the tranquil canals that weave through the elegant centre, there are visual pleasures for everyone dotted in and around the centre.

But the natural spectacle of the White Nights are just as special a sight to behold. Due to its northern location - on the same latitude as parts of Greenland and Alaska -  during the summer months the sun does not drop below the horizon, bathing St Petersburg in sunshine every hour of the day. This means that visitors can head out for a late night romantic walk along the banks of the river or canals, beneath the glow of the Midnight Sun.

The historic Belmond Grand Hotel Europe is an iconic building based right in the heart of the city, on the famous Nevsky Prospekt. As well as fantastic 4-for-3 and 3-for-2 offers throughout the year, this luxury hotel also has a fantastic option for guests to enjoy the full spectacle of the summer months. Upon booking a Historic Room between 3 June and 13 July 2020, guests will be entitled to a complimentary upgrade* to a top-floor Terrace Room, with the picturesque terrace offering truly magnificent views over the city skyline.
