If one looks at the specialty of different parts of this planet earth then there can't be any other sense than the sense of wonder.  One way to look at the wonder of nature is scientific but the other way is poetic. And a traveller is more fascinated by the poetic wonder of nature. One such place that we are going to talk about in this article where an amazing phenomenon takes place is St. Petersburg in Russia.

From the mysterious twilight of the White Nights to world-beating opera and ballet productions on magical winter evenings, St. Petersburg charms and entices in every season. White Nights is basically a period every year in St. Petersburg when nights are bright. White Nights starts in May, when the city finally succumbs to spring and the parks are filled with flowering trees, but mid-June is peak time, as the sun slumps lazily towards the horizon but never fully sets. Geographical reason for this is that St. Petersburg is the most northern city in the world. Due to its latitudinal position sun does not go down enough and so sky does not get dark. Long summer days exist in other parts of Russia too from Moscow to Yekaterinburg to Yakutsk but White nights in St. Petersburg make it special. This poetic and unique beauty of the city has become an identity of St. Petersburg over the years. Specially more so because every year White night festival is held in the city during this period from May to July. It is not wrong to say that no other European city can match this experience. The atmosphere on the streets of St. Petersburg during White nights is romantic, poetic, lively and people busting throughout the night as they do in the day time.

This culmination celebration sees about one million people attending it out of which majority are students from local and international colleges.
