So a trip to Russia must be well planned looking at the weather. The largest country and closer to North Pole, has affected its vegetation and economic conditions.
It’s a beautiful country with landscapes, cities, culture, varied food and people and so much to explore.
So it must be firstly decided as to what all do you want to see and explore in how much time.
We had one week to see Russia and we chose the two major cities St. Petersburg and Moscow.
Check the weather before visiting Russia. We visited during end of May 2018.
There are only 60 days in the year which experiences sunlight in Russia as told to us by bus driver and local guide at St. Petersburg. We were lucky to have seen sunlight so the weather was good.
I felt the change in temperature from cold to hot , form using heaters to using AC in just week.
The days were also very long. It became dark at 10 PM and sunrise at 4 AM. For those who would open their whiskeys and scotch before dinner, should do it after drawing the curtains to feel that it’s evening.
I would advise to check the flights. We didn’t get direct flight from India and had to reach st. Petersburg by changing flight from Moscow.
