When to go
Late spring, summer and early autumn are generally considered to be the best time to travel to Moscow. It’s warm outside and the days are long. The temperature varies from 20 to 30°C. Restaurants have many open terraces, parks are green and numerous festivals take place showing the streets at the best advantage.
At the same time, those who are not afraid of winter and don’t mind putting on another layer of clothes would be rewarded by the crisp of snow under their feet, eating bliny (Russian pancakes) at the main Christmas market of the country on the Red Square and skating on the rink in front of the Kremlin. Although the season can be inconvenient for touring on foot, the food is still good, the museums are opened and the suburban towns covered with snow get an unmatched Russian charm.
