A couple of years ago I posted a thread about visiting Moscow and St Petersburg in winter and got some good advice - thanks.
Sadly I have not yet visited Russia but there may be an emerging opportunity to visit mid-April this year for a week.
Some quick google searches show April may not be the best time to visit as likely to be neither snowy or warm, and instead more slushy! Has anyone visited either of these cities in April and able to share experiences of what it was like at this time of year?
I know you can make the most of a place whatever the season/weather but if these cities really are to be visited in winter or summer maybe I should wait? My motivations for going in April are - it's my birthday and I want to go somewhere awesome to forget how old i'm getting. And i've found some really cheap direct flights in April. I've also read it's more affordable at this time as off-season.
This thread has been moved to the Europe forum. Go to the new Has anyone visited Moscow and/or St Petersburg in mid thread.
