Spring does not arrive at once. Its first month, March, is rather unstable. Only after around early April does the temperature consistently stay above freezing. If you come to Saint Petersburg in April or early May, you will be able to see a most thrilling sight – the ice-drift of the Neva. Enormous ice floes, hurried on by the wind and a strong current, race down the river to the Gulf of Finland.
