Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The main tourist season is between June and August, when the weather is the warmest. Standout seasons to visit Russia are late spring (May or June) and early autumn (September or October), when the city’s parks are filled with flowering trees or colorful leaves.

The deepest, darkest part of winter is undeniably cold but if you are prepared it can be an adventure. Furs and vodka keep people warm and snow-covered landscapes are picturesque. A solid snowpack covers the ground from November to March.
