Moscow Guide Summer 2015


Just Three Months!

  • June 09, 2015
Summer in the capital cities of Moscow and St. Petersburg may seem a bit grim this year. News on the political and economic fronts is depressing, and the poor exchange rates have kept many people from taking vacations abroad. In fact, a lot of people are too stressed, or too worried about money, to even take a vacation in Russia.

What's On This SummerЕ

  • June 09, 2015
Virtually every day of summer in St. Petersburg is a holiday. The white nights in the northern capital are almost three months of non-stop sunlight, boat rides, strolling, eating, drinking and partying.

Sweet Sleeps

  • June 09, 2015
The Venice of the North, like its namesake in the south, has always welcomed foreign and domestic tourists. In recent years, the city has strongly supported tourism, which means that it has made it relatively easy to buy, build, reconstruct and open new hotels.

Summer Dining

  • June 09, 2015
In the summer, St. Petersburg doesn't sprout quite as many outdoor cafes as Moscow does; the weather is, after all, less predictable and the terrace season is shorter.

Keeping Fit and Healthy

  • June 09, 2015
The northern capital has plenty of fitness centers and sports halls, and far more public bathhouses than Moscow. But life in the far north, where the sun barely rises for half the year and the damp cold coming off the Neva River wreak havoc on your appearance, requires special care and a bit of indulgence.

What to Do with the Kids?

  • June 09, 2015
During the white nights of summer, St. Petersburg's children have a hard time getting to sleep Ц it's not just the constant light, it's the plethora of celebrations, events, and festivals.

Parks and Recreation

  • June 09, 2015
One of the joys of living in cities that were once tsarist capitals is that they have far more former estates, summer residences, and pleasure parks than your average republican city.
