When is the best time to fly to Moscow?

Moscow is a historic and architecturally fantastic destination that welcomes visitors from across the globe. The city has very distinct seasons. The humid continental climate offers warm to hot summers, brief but glorious spring and fall seasons, and long, frigid winters. If you decide to make a winter trip to Moscow, be prepared for temperatures that dip to average lows of 14 – 21 degrees Fahrenheit. Pack the warmest gear you own! Fewer tourists visit during Moscow’s winter, so you may find better pricing on flights and accommodation.

If you visit in summer, make sure to book your flights and rooms well in advance and expect to pay higher prices.

Best things to do and see in Moscow

Things to do and places of interest in Moscow

Moscow is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful cities in the world, and well worth seeing. From the stunning, onion-domed St. Basil’s Cathedral to the sleek modern structures in the city’s new business district, you’d be hard-pressed to find another place with so many contrasting skylines. Here are a few of the sights and activities worth adding to your itinerary, when you travel to Moscow.

  • Stroll around Red Square, the heart and soul of Russia. One of the most historically significant sites in the world, Moscow’s cobbled central square is surrounded by other must-see sights, including the Kremlin, St. Basil’s Cathedral, Lenin’s Mausoleum, and more.
  • You could spend days exploring the Kremlin, the biggest medieval fortress in Russia, which also happens to be the largest active fortress in all of Europe. Within its 2,235-meter-long walls, there are 5 squares and 18 buildings, 20 towers, and the world’s largest bell and cannon.
  • Pick up some souvenirs at GUM. The glass-roofed mall is home to over 200 upscale shops, several great eateries, a Soviet-style grocery store – Gastronom №1 – and the swankiest historic toilet you’ll ever see.
  • Every world-class city has a significant park, and Moscow’s is Gorky Park. Originally opened in 1928, in 2011 Gorky Park underwent a major design upgrade and now has a renewed, vibrant look. The park sees around 20,000 visitors every day.
  • Take a Moscow Metro Tour and visit the 12 stations listed as cultural heritage sites. The Metro opened in 1935 and was one of the USSR’s most extravagant architectural projects. Most of the central stations look like museums, with their own ambiance, embellishments, and story.
  • Take in a ballet or opera performance at the historic Bolshoi Theatre. This structure is a landmark of Moscow and Russia, and is depicted on the Russian 100-rouble banknote.

Tips and tricks for visiting Moscow

Avoid the people who approach you offering taxi services immediately after getting through customs. Even though they may be wearing uniforms that say, “official airport taxi”, they are usually illegal taxi services. These taxis can cost much more than the official taxis because they don’t have set prices.

DON’T order vodka with orange juice or tonic! You might be breaking an obscure Russian law, or at the very least, you risk being considered uncivilized by the Russian bartender. Vodka may be chased with lemon or a pickle, and must be drunk swiftly, not sipped.
