Moscow summer

Moscow summer Moscow is a different city in the summer. From the beginning of June onwards the temperatures start to rise up into the low thirties - which, in a land-locked city this size, can feel pretty hot - and most Muscovites respond by trying to spend as much time out of the city as possible, either on holiday or, most weekends, at the dacha. It's also the time of year when most theaters close or go on tour, although provisions are made for the tourist season. June is still a good time to visit, though, and if you're planning a longer stay then the summer months are of course the best time to get out to the Golden Ring and the other attractions around Moscow.

If you're planning to travel out into the countryside then it's worth bringing insect repellant of some sort. Bear in mind also that, while you'll want to bring the right clothes to stay comfortable in the heat, urban Russians tend to dress a little more formally - which is not quite the same as respectably - than their Western counterparts and, although there are no strict rules for what to wear, the standard tourist uniform of baseball cap, T-shirt, shorts and trainers will not be considered endearing by the locals on any but the very young. The more soberly you dress the less you stand out, and this is generally an advantage.
