The city is extremely huge. There are many streets all around the canals with his own curiosities. At summer, it is pleasant to find many artists in the streets, drawing, painting, singing, doing performances. This is the surprise that I found when I visited Saint-Petersburg. I discovered this street art every where around the Palace Square.
Peterhof Palace is of course the must to see. One day should be enough to enjoy the immense park and his monuments. There are many shuttles to reach the place.
By night, specially at summer, the nights are very short and it is amazing to look at the sky split in two, one dark and the other one lighted by the sunrise from the North face. This kind of phenomena is unique and the experience worths.
