When to visit Moscow
To experience the city with long sunny days when you can enjoy sightseeing, book your flights to Moscow between June and August. This is the most expensive season naturally, but if you search in advance, you can get amazing deals on hotels here on Skyscanner. Cheap flights to Moscow can be found during the fall and spring, April-May and September-October. The temperatures are lower (8-18 during the day), but it’s still not as brutal as the winter.

It might be tough, but this way you get the full Russian experience.
What to see and do in Moscow
The Russian capital has something to offer to everyone.
Sightseeings: If it’s your first trip to Moscow, you must visit the Kremlin and Red Square. Other sites that should be on your list are the grandeur of St Basil's Cathedral, and of course Lenin's mausoleum to see his embalmed body. While Tel Aviv is being dug for its new underground system, Moscow's underground stations are astonishing. You can dedicate a day just for hopping from station to station admiring the artwork, frescoes, and bronze statues. Gorky Park is probably the coolest place in Moscow, where you can spend a pleasant summer afternoon and go to one of the trendy cafes, where free Wi-Fi is offered so that you can update your Instagram page with stunning photos. If you visit in winter head here for ice skating and ice sculpture competitions.
Arts & Culture: From circus to ballet, Moscow has a lot to offer for arts and culture lovers. Just make sure you book your tickets in advance, especially if you have found cheap flights to Moscow during summer. Tchaikovsky and Chekhov at the Bolshoi Theater are popular too, and you can end up the night while enjoying some authentic Russian cuisine and dance in one of the city’s many nightclubs.
