  • All-inclusive stays: 1447 € / week

  • Round-trip flight: 190 €

Russia: Climate & Weather


The largest country in the world, Russia offers a climate with temperatures that get colder as you go from the South to the North and from the West to East as it turns into a more continental climate.

Winters are very cold; more so in Moscow than St. Petersburg with less snowfall in the latest. In spring, melting snow creates almost permanent mud everywhere in the country. At St. Petersburg, nights in June are clear as in all regions situated in the North because the sun doesn’t really set. So, when planning to visit Russia, avoid the muddy spring and crowded July and August.

Autumn gives you the opportunity to admire a beautiful side of nature with its changing colours, and winter even though very cold has an undeniable charm: The snow is present but the cities are alive and vodka is flowing!
