Moscow spring

Moscow spring Spring is no unmitigated delight in Moscow. The end of winter means thaw, and thaw means slush and dirt, with temperatures hovering around 0 ºC often for several weeks in March. Somehow connected to this, it's also the time when things breakdown or get cut off most often. By April, however, the worst is over, the city is turning green, and the weather is relatively mild. This is probably the most popular time for tourists to visit the city, with the conditions just right for sightseeing and city life still in full swing before the mass summer exodus.

Early May is another time for nationwide revelry, with two public holidays - May 1st and Victory Day on May 9th - only a week apart and very little work done in between. If you want to see parades, fireworks and Russian street parties, then this is definitely the time to come.

Temperatures do not get much above 10 ºC before May, so you'll still need the equivalent of a woolen overcoat, and its worth bringing scarves and gloves just in case. Tough shoes or boots are also recommended to cope with the slush and mud and, although Moscow has a pretty dry climate, an umbrella is still an essential at this time of year.
