The Destination
St. Petersburg, Russia, doesn't follow the normal rhythms of day and night. Far north on the Gulf of Finland, the city experiences long days in the summer (the sun never quite sets from late May to early July) and seemlingly endless winter darkness—extremes that cast its baroque architecture in an ever-changing light.

By day, drawbridges creak open along the Neva River in the pale morning sun, and revelers join round-the-clock merriment for the White Nights summer festival. But Czar Peter the Great's city lives for the evenings, when inventive cuisine fills the chic restaurants and the world's premier performers take the stage at the ballet and opera. Such exalted high culture is at once a celebration of history and a show of defiance, signaling that the spirit of imperial Russia will never surrender its longtime capital.

  • "In St. Petersburg, the grand city of the czars, they call them the 'White Nights': those 80 or so evenings when the city emerges from long months of cold and darkness and celebrates the brief return of nearly round-the-clock daylight."
