Russia Travel Tips

The largest country in the world, Russia has certainly experienced its share of history.  It is a land bursting with cultural and historic treasures as well as unspoiled natural beauty. Moscow is a traveler favorite with much to offer, from great restaurants and international hotels to its many historic monuments. Highlights include the Red Square, Kremlin, St Basils Cathedral, New Maiden Convent and the fantastic Cathedral of Christ the Redeemer. To the north, stylish St. Petersburg greets you with its system of canals and mighty palaces.  Officially proclaimed the “Cultural Capital of Russia,” this charming imperial city offers fascinating attractions such as the Hermitage Museum and the Kirov Ballet of the Mariensky Theater. Discover these popular destinations for yourself on an expertly planned tour of Russia.

When is the best time to travel to Russia?  The country’s climate varies by region, with weather in St. Petersburg being milder than Moscow. June, July and August are ideal months overall.  The rainy season takes place from May through October, with snowfall possible as early as October and as late as May. Due to its location near the Arctic Circle, days in Moscow can reach 17 hours long in summer months and up to 19 hours in St. Petersburg. These are known as Russia’s famous "white nights."
