Average time to visit
The main tourist season is between June and August, when the weather is the warmest. Standout seasons to visit St Petersburg are late spring (May or June) and early autumn (September or October), when the city’s parks are filled with flowering trees or colourful 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 snow pack covers the ground from November to March. The city gets fired up to ring in the New Year, when Muscovites emerge from their warm homes into the winter night for free concerts and fireworks.
Experience the ultimate in Russian culture and luxury at the Kempinski Hotel Moika 22. Named after the canal by which it stands, the Moika 22 is right at the heart of the historical centre of St Petersburg and boasts incredible views.
The Hotel offers fantastic views of some of the main cultural hotspots of the city, being a moment's walk from the famous Hermitage museum, which is home to a collection of over 2 million works of Russian art and artefacts. The Palace Square and arguably the most well known street in Russia, Nevksy Prospekt, are within easy reach. Moika 22's canal side location away from the main road means that sleep won't be disturbed by the noise of the city centre.
The hotel opened in 2005, and offers understated luxury in a modern style behind its 19th century facade. Within the hotel itself one can become acquainted with the rich colours, impressive views and sumptuous cuisine that has made Russia so sought after in recent years. With a separate breakfast room, two restaurants and a bar (stocking some of the finest Russian vodkas of course!), guests will never tire of the variety of choices.
An impressive wellness centre has also been established offering treatments designed to relax you after a day of exploring and to get you ready for whatever the evening may bring, whether it is a visit to the world famous Russian ballet or simply enjoying a few drinks with blinis and caviar at the aptly named Bellevue Brasserie.
After an evening packed with adventure, retire to one of the luxuriously furnished rooms or suites, all of which offer panoramic views of golden cupolas and gilded palaces.
There are a variety of rooms available as well as three different styles of suites. All offer fantastic views while the suites include larger bathrooms, and spacious living areas. They are all elegantly decorated and have an air of grace to them whilst remaining wonderfully comfortable to ensure a good night's sleep.

The Beau Rivage is used as the breakfast room, providing a variety of international offerings from homemade jam to Italian Parma ham, French Champagne and of course caviar.
