St. Petersburg Hotels
Known as Russia's Northern Capital, St. Petersburg has become a popular destination, especially in summer when tourists come in droves to enjoy the midnight sunshine of the “White Nights.” The good news is that to cater for this demand, a huge number of hip hostels, cozy mini-hotels and elegant boutique hotels have been opening over the past few years, greatly expanding the accommodation options.
Visitor numbers drop dramatically once summer's over, with lodgings in all categories slashing their prices to as little as half their summertime peak. So if you don't mind a chill in the air, you can really save while exploring the city during its least touristy times of year. Fall and winter not only clear out the crowds, they also bring the stunning beauty of golden leaves or a sparkling layer of snow.
