When to visit Moscow
The best time to visit Moscow is from April to May when the weather is most pleasant, hotel rates are friendlier, and there are great events in the city. Spring (June-August) is also a lovely time to visit when the city and its cultural attractions are in full bloom, but it is the city’s high season. Summer (September-October) is another great time to visit Moscow when you can enjoy fewer crowds and score excellent deals, plus October is also the cheapest time to fly to Moscow.
As soon as you secure your travel visa, tourist (hotel stay) or visitor (staying with relatives or friends), you can fly to Russia and visit Moscow.
