The best time to visit Moscow is March and April. The autumn months of September and October is also a good time to visit the city. During these months, the city overflows with visitors from around the globe. The average temperature remains 75°F to 90°F (-59°C to 32°C) during these two months, which is comfortable enough to explore the city during the day time. Winters in Moscow, however, are chilly. The average temperature during December and January remains around -80°F to 80°F (-62°C to 27°C), which goes down further in the eastern part like, Siberia. Winters are great for skating though. Also, travelling south towards the Black Sea can be a relief from the prickly cold weather. March is an amazing time to visit St. Petersburg as well. You can pay a visit to the famous palaces and museums without the crowd around.
