Early spring is almost like winter but starting from mid-April it’s becoming pretty warm almost everywhere (except mountain regions), trees are becoming green, flowers bloom and there’s such a good smell of them in the air.
Late spring is perfect time to visit beautiful parks such as the one in Pavlovsk near Saint-Petersburg, or take a walk through the various cities enjoying pleasant atmosphere and cool air of spring time.
Russian vacations in spring will give you a lot of impressions that you will keep in your memory for all your life.
Summer is a great time to visit almost any place in Russia. You can visit Moscow or go to remote regions of Russia to enjoy unique nature — to go to such regions as Siberia, Altai or Kamchatka. There are a lot of possibilities to get to know Russian nature. For example, you can go to Lake Baikal — the longest and the deepest lake of the world.
If you would like to come in summer, you can also visit famous resorts, residences of the Russian Tsars and make Russian river cruises. Summer is also the time of renowned White Nights. While staying in St. Petersburg you have an unique chance to feel deeply this time of the year and enjoy fabulous strolls all the night long and the famous bridge partings.
The towns — residences of the Russian Tsars — open their doors for you. Pushkin, Pavlovsk, Peterhof (Petrodvorets) are also good places to have rest and enjoy summer time.
Autumn is good for Russian vacations too. From September to mid-October the weather is still fine, sometimes it’s even close to this in summer, but the nature is becoming more and more beautiful as leaves on trees are becoming yellow, orange, red and brown.
In autumn you can visit main cities, to have a voyage and canals and rivers on a small boat wrapping yourself in a cozy plaid enjoying splendid views of the Moscow or Saint-Petersburg from water, to have a walk in autumn parks, raking colorful fallen leaves from trees with your legs, or to cruise down the Volga river.
The winter is cold in Russia. December is pretty mild in Moscow or in Saint-Petersburg, but if you plan to visit eastern Russia — you have to take some very warm clothes with you. January is freezing cold and February is the same most of the time. Russia in winter time is for snow-lovers. If you come in winter you can visit all the museums, theatres and places of interest, participate in the Russian national festivals and spend unforgettable time.
Starting from second half of december the streets in every city are decorated for New Year Celebration, for example Nevsky prospect in Saint-Petersburg is so beautiful at this time! Moreover, accommodation in winter is cheaper than in other seasons, so you can save some money.
Hotels in Russia offer a wide range of opportunities both for business and leisure travelers, comfortable rooms and irreproachable service.
