  6. Sweta V

    Hi.. I plan to visit Russia from 1st May to 7th May this year.. Is it a good time to travel? 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??
    Due to Victory Day approaching closer to my travel dates, will I face travel issues or something.. Your insight will really be very helpful. Thanks

    1. admin

      “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.

  7. Joey

    Hi, we will be visiting St Petersburg in Sep. We want to see the fountains in Peterhof. But we also understand the fountains may be closed in Sep. Do you know when the fountains will be closed in Sep this year? are the public allowed to watch the closing ceremony?

      The closing ceremony is usually held in mid-September. However, the actual closing of the fountains is scheduled for the end of September or mid-October depending on weather.

      “Do you know when the fountains will be closed in Sep this year?”
      Unfortunately no. It will be known in May-June.

      Of-course! You can buy the tickets yourself or book our tour for the closing ceremony.

    1. admin

      Yes, choires concerts take place in some cathedrals, for instance in St Isaac’s Cathedral, State Academic Chapel of St. Petersburg, Church of the Resurrection of Christ. Here the schedule: http://isaak.ticketnet.ru/ru/billboard/1#section=21 (Rus.language, use google translate)

      “how is September in terms of tourist visit in St. Petersburg?”
      September is a good time to visit the city, especially if you come in the first two weeks of the month. The weather is still pleasant and the tourist flow is already less.
