It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace.

When to go to Moscow

Peak Season: late-June to early-August

Compared to the six-month-long winters, summers in Moscow seem incredibly short and people are furious to take advantage of them. Hotels fill up fast and the parties seem to go on forever. Temperatures average 68°F.

Off Season: late-November to early-April

Some may complain about the cold, dark, 20-degree winters, but this is the time to see Moscow in all of its brutal beauty. Vodka helps ease the chill. Although hotel rates stay the same, flights discounts are common.

Sweet Spot: late-April to early-June; late-August to early-November

However you look at it, life here is defined by winter – in spring your senses begin to return to you; in fall an anticipatory dread creeps in . Expect weather in the mid-50s.
