Best Time to Visit Moscow
If there’s one season to avoid going to Moscow during, its winter. The Russian capital is known for its bitterly cold winters, and the sun shines for only about 7 hours a day during this season. Spring, summer and autumn are all good times to visit, however, so simply avoid planning your trip from December to February.
Summer is most tourists’ favourite season, as temperatures in Moscow can rise all the way to 30°C. This naturally leads to bigger crowds and hiked-up hotel room prices, though, so the shoulder seasons of spring and autumn may offer a more pleasant experience. Though the weather may not be as warm, the city is covered with trees and flowers either in first bloom or fall colours, so walking through the city’s many parks and gardens is a magical experience.
Things to do in Moscow
Moscow’s key attractions are renowned throughout the world and, conveniently, are all arranged around the city centre - there’s the Kremlin, a spectacular compound of palaces and churches that are home to the President, as well as the iconic Red Square and Bolshoi Theatre.
