Most importantly, during Summer you won't be trapped on the wrong side of the river. If you're not aware yet, from the end of April through to the middle of November many of the bridges across the Neva River are raised at night to allow ships to pass through, so if you stay on the wrong side of the river you'll be stranded there without any opportunity to get back to your hotel until one of these bridges are lowered again.
Although this is a spectacular and popular event not to be missed, this is a big deal for many Russians, including ourselves, as it can determine your night's activity, and may implicate even yours if you plan to enjoy sizzling nightlife. So if you come in the Summer don't forget that Saint Petersburg is not only the Cultural Capital of Russia but also a city of bridges.☺
