Russian for "white nights".
Beliye nochi refers to that time of
year (mid-summer) when areas in Russia of
sufficiently high latitude have 24-hours
of daylight and sunshine.
Also one of the symbols of St. Petersburg, along with the drawbridges, Petropavlovka and so on. I lived on that latitude back in the days, and indeed, there is full sunshine at 10 PM, and in the midnight it's hardly a twilight.
