If you’re visiting Saint Petersburg in the summer, you should not miss this spectacle under any circumstances. You’re best coming to the river bank in Dvortsovaya or Admiralteyskaya at just before 1 o’clock at night. These two lookout points are ideal for observing the two largest bridges lift over the river. You can also buy tickets for the popular night tour. Then you take the boat to the bridges. A special highlight is presented by the bridges lifting during the «white nights». At all events, stay on the right side of the bridge. Otherwise you’ll find yourself cut off from some parts of Saint Petersburg until the bridges drop the next morning. This spectacle lasts one to two hours and is the most impressive in June and July.
