"Opening of the Bridges" Rivers and Canals Tip by travelingdanna
Rivers and Canals, Saint Petersburg: 83 reviews and 201 photos
During the summer, the major bridges in St. Petersburg open during the night to let the bigger boats pass through. This can get annoying, because you need to schedule around the bridge openings if you want to stay out at night in the center. But it's fun to watch them open. People gather on the banks to watch, and a bunch of small boats also approach the bridge to watch it open - it's like a small party. The times they open vary - usually around 1:30 AM, coming down again around 5. Many maps and guidebooks have the exact times.
