Spring in St. Petersburg, as in most of the northern cities, comes late. It is not for nothing that St. Petersburg is called ‘The Northern capital’ of Russia. It is due to the nearness of the Gulf of Finland and Ladoga lake and the Neva river and other smaller channels crossing the city. The region receives cold and dry arctic air masses formed by the ice of the Arctic Ocean. The duration of the day in St. Petersburg varies from 18 hours 50 minutes in the summer solstice to 5 hours 51 minutes in the winter solstice. Moist cold sea air. Frozen nature. Frozen people, tired of the cold. Yes, the cold season is a check of our resistance and warm-heartedness.
Here rises the thought, when is the spring going to come? I would say that the first spring lights light up after the Women’s day on the 8th of March when there flourish the first flowers – our beautiful ladies dressed up all light, bright and colorful. Due to high atmospheric pressure in spring, cyclones are rare, and the weather is relatively stable, and here comes the clear blue sky more often than in other periods of the year. Since then winter recedes into the background even though it is still as cold.
When will the real spring come to the city on the Neva? Climatic spring comes in late March.
By mid-April, the city is getting warmer, the sun appears in the sky, which is already warming up with its rays. For the last week of the second spring month, tourists can already plan a trip to St. Petersburg, but still they should better take warm clothes and a raincoat with them.
More spring holidays, such as Easter and other Christian holidays, Spring and Labor Day on the 1st of May, Victory Day on the 9th of May, etc., unnoticeably and irrevocably warm us up and carry us to a warm and inviting Petersburg.
As to me, I would like to note that a warm jacket, favorite work and a warm company of friends and family is all it takes to keep warm. I want to thank the customers for the favorite work and friends and family – for support.
