A Raising Experience At St. Petersburg's Bridges

The hippest activity in St. Petersburg around 1:30 a.m? Watching a bridge open. Seriously, it's a big event in the summer when the city opens its bridges along the central Neva River for the night. Logistically, the openings allow for late night ship navigation. Emotionally, it's a late night reveler's party moment.

Lining up along the Neva, waiting for the curtain (bridge) raising to begin.

There she goes!

A real crowd pleaser, from romantics to those folks wanting the best view.

We're not done. Once the bridge is open, time for an "I was there" snap.

Or a hang out. Time to check your messages until you figure what's next at 2:00 a.m.
