Traveling to Russia, everytime you come there will be something to see or do. For example, we could do ice fishing on winter, going to enjoy the beach in summer or just enjoying the scenery which all of the season listed will give you the top quality scenery.
Sometimes, planning to go somewhere during your travel, could not guarantee you an enjoyable trip, sometimes it will. But why? Well, what you could do is limited to what season you are traveling, and this is also true for going to Russia.
Obviously, you can’t just come to Russia in winter and say you want to enjoy wildlife, well, sorry to crush your hope. but most of the animal is hibernating during that period. What more you couldn’t say, “Let’s go ice fishing in Lake Baikal now!” at summer. That just makes you look crazy right?
Well, Planning for enjoyable trips could somewhat tricky, although Russia could offer you anything to enjoy your travel. Still, you need a plan about what to do in there, or else you gonna be stuck up in your hotel confused about your next destination.
So start to plan what season you want to come, whether its spring, summer, autumn, or winter. After you have chosen your time to travel, the next thing you should think of is how much is your budget, and how much time will you spend there. See? that’s just a start, after you plan everything listed above, next you choose what is your destination.
You could choose based on your budget, the time you have in Russia, or the season you are coming. Why can’t you just go to every famous tourist spot there? Well, you could, but I don’t guarantee you will get what you hope for, because some places are best to enjoy when you go at the right season.
After everything is said and done, now is the time you choose an activity you are going to do there. You could choose from A to Z it’s up to you, from spring it might be enjoying some spring festival or maybe winter, you could spend the time to some small city in Siberian and enjoy the aurora.
But of every season you could see in Russia, the best season to travel in Russia is autumn. I said that because of some reasons, which you will also find it logical. In spring if you want to spend your time enjoying the cityscape, wildlife, historical site everything you could name it, sometimes a blizzard could make your schedule a mess. Summer is to hot to spend time traveling from one places to other destination. The same could be said during the winter season, known as the harshest season in the world.
For many Russian, autumn might be the most favorite season to them, why? because it’s the time to spend their activities enjoying life, for example, many private parties, treasure hunt and barbecue is being held during the autumn season. That also true for the tourist, it is the best time you could go and enjoy exploring the city in a relaxed way, also because the tourist traffic is not high, you could get a reasonable price for your accommodation.
