Your guide to Russia holidays
Things to do in Russia
Russia has loads of monuments and landmarks which are majestic in size and beauty. Head to the famous Red Square in Moscow which comprises the Kremlin, St. Basil’s Cathedral and Lenin’s museum. The Kremlin is perhaps one of Russia’s most well-known sights, consisting of a fortified site containing churches and palaces as well as museums highlighting Russia’s art. St. Basil’s Cathedral is one of the most symbolic images you’ll see of Russia. Multicoloured domes have become the iconic features that we all know so well. The cathedral now houses a museum of the church it used to be. Finally, Kazan Cathedral in St Petersburg is a beautiful sight to witness: once a church, now made into a museum since Russia’s communist era.
When to go
Russia is known to be a cold country, and it can get extremely cold, depending on the location you’re visiting and the time of year. Typically, summer is a popular time to visit as this is when Russia’s temperatures are at their highest. However, as this is the warmest time to visit, that means the summer months attract more tourists than usual. As a result, Russia’s main attractions can get quite crowded. Therefore, some of the best times to visit Russia are during the late spring and early autumn as the weather isn’t too cold and the crowds are fewer.
