St. Petersburg is a prosperous, commercial, industrial and manufacturing city, and is also the cultural and sporting centre for much of the region. St. Petersburg is located at the mouth of the Neva River, and across the islands of its delta on the coast of the Finnish Gulf of the Baltic Sea. Its nearest suburbs are situated on the lowland adjacent to the Neva River, and along the Gulf. St. Petersburg is situated on 600 of the northern latitude that passes roughly across the South of Alaska and Greenland. The local climate mostly depends on Baltic Sea and western winds. Summer here is not very hot and winter is not too cold. Fall is usually rainy, and spring comes only at the end of April, March being still frosty. You can enjoy the beauties of White Night on the bank of the Neva River from May 25 till July 16.
