      “Is it a good time to travel?” Warm weather and numerous holidays make May the best month to visit Russia.

      “Could anyone plz suggest the places that I can cover in 6days.. I was planning to go to Moscow and St. Petersburg.. Is there any place else I should consider??”.
      6 days are not enough even for Moscow and St Petersburg 🙂
      However, if you are eager to cover as much as you can, go to Vladimir and Suzdal. They are belong to the Golden Ring and full of places of interests and historical sights.

      “Due to Victory Day approaching closer to my travel dates, will I face travel issues or something..”
      Don’t think so.. One of the drawbacks of the Victory day celebration is that some flights can be delayed due to aerobatic performances.

      The last couple years there were no fireworks on the City Day. However, this year the city will celebrate its 315th birthday. Perhaps, this year will be an exception.

      Hi Matias!
      The Peterhof staff told that the palace will be open on 14th of August for a whole day, but on 15th and 16th of August it will be most likely open until noon because of the closing ceremony of the fountains.

      Dear Yushi,

      The period you mentioned is one of the brightest in Russia and St Petersburg. Begining from 31 December the New year holidays start. They are widely celebrated throughout Russia and offer winter leisures, fairs, and even street concerts. Stay tuned for upcoming events. We update the page each month.
