Climate in Russia
The main holiday season for Russians and foreigners is during the warmest months of July and August, but it also rains a lot during this time. The best times to visit are May and June or September and October, avoiding most of the crowds and the rain. Winters are very cold and bitter, especially in Siberia, but are also beautiful. February usually has the worst weather - it's windy and extremely cold with very little snow.
