Best Time to Visit Russia

If you’re looking for a place to explore that is full of history and culture, then look no further than Russia.

It’s filled with majestic architecture, lush forests, and stunning mountain ranges—not to mention some of the best food in the world! But when is the best time to visit this incredible country?

Let’s break it down.


The summer months in Russia are usually from June through August. The weather is usually warm and sunny with temperatures ranging from 75-85°F (24-29°C).

However, these months also bring more tourists, so if you’re looking for an authentic experience, it may be best to avoid these peak times.

Spring and Fall

Spring and fall are great times to visit as they offer mild temperatures between 50-65°F (10-18°C). These months also offer fewer crowds compared to the summer months.

You can explore the city at your own pace without having to worry about bumping into too many people along the way. Plus, during springtime, you will get the chance to see beautiful cherry blossoms all over Moscow!


If you’re looking for a unique experience, then wintertime should be your go-to season. Imagine walking through snow-covered streets or exploring frozen lakes—the winter season offers a completely different atmosphere than any other season.

Of course, temperatures can drop quite low during this time (usually around 20-30°F/-6to -1°C), but if you bundle up appropriately it’s easy enough to enjoy yourself without getting too cold!


No matter when you decide to visit Russia there will always be something new and exciting waiting for you around every corner. Whether it’s strolling through quaint cobblestone streets or taking in breathtaking views of nature—Russia has something for everyone!

Keep in mind that while summertime offers great weather and plenty of activities, it also brings more tourists which can make sightseeing less enjoyable.

For a more authentic experience with fewer crowds, consider visiting during spring or fall when temperatures are pleasant and there are fewer people around.

If you’re feeling adventurous, wintertime offers a unique atmosphere, unlike any other season which makes it well worth braving the colder temperatures! Whichever season you choose to visit Russia, we guarantee that you won’t be disappointed!
