Jun 6th St Petersburg - I'll be there

I'm a proud owner of a ticket at FAN zone for 6 June, St Petersburg, Russia rock3

I'll be glad to share the joy with all of you who will be there!

White Nights: What could be more romantic than a walk along the banks of the city's rivers and canals in almost broad daylight, no matter what the time of day?

From late May to early July the nights are bright in St Petersburg, with the brightest period, the White Nights, normally lasting from June 11th to July 2nd. The White Nights (Beliye Nochi) are a curious phenomenon caused by St. Petersburg's very northerly geographical location - at 59 degrees 57' North (roughly on the same latitude as Oslo, Norway, the southern tip of Greenland and Seward, Alaska). St. Petersburg is the world's most northern city with a population over 1 million, and its stands at such a high latitude that the sun does not descend below the horizon enough for the sky to grow dark. In fact night becomes curiously indistinguishable from day, so much so that the authorities never need to turn the city's streetlights on!



Any ideas for interesting places to visit (attractions, museums, parks... restaurants, bars...), for the song list for the concert, for before or after concert fan party are more than welcome :thumbsup:
