On this trip to Russia 2022 we will see that Russian culture has a long history and tradition and Russians are very proud of it. Russians consider themselves to be a very cultured nation. There is a lot of reading in Russia. Books are very cheap, and a person can buy 5 to 10 books a month without putting a great burden on the family economy.
At the same time, most Russians do not have what the West calls “good manners”. Their manners are not bad, they are simply Russian manners. Russia is a harsh continent and Russians usually do not hesitate to say things in a way that leaves no room for misunderstanding. During the Soviet period having Western-style “good manners” was considered to be reminiscent of the bourgeoisie (and don’t forget that the Soviet system was against everything bourgeois). Russians are very direct. When they see each other or call each other on the phone, they don’t waste time with questions like “How are you feeling?” and get straight to the point. It’s not that they are rude, it’s simply a way of doing things.

Winter cold does not let up in Russia during February, so bring plenty of warm clothes, gloves, socks and the thickest coat you own. Temperatures are likely to be below freezing in major cities for most of your stay, except in more southerly locations such as Sochi, where temperatures average around 6°C (41°F).
By May, the weather in most of Russia (even in some cities in Siberia) is more pleasant after the cold winter and early spring. Flowers are appearing, the days are longer and the calendar of events with parades, holidays and festivals starts to fill up.
Except for sporadic cold snaps, June in Russia is mostly warm during the day and cool at night. However, since St. Petersburg has almost 24 hours of daylight, there is not much difference between day and night, so you should bring extra clothes in case it gets cold.
You can travel to russia without a visa
Winston Churchill’s observation is as appropriate today as it was in the mid-20th century. Russia is as intriguing as ever. Stubbornly steadfast as a country that will not bow to convention, refusing to be labeled European or Asian, Russia is still Russia.
While the country has modernized by leaps and bounds since the fall of the Soviet Union, the culture remains even more defiant in its distinction from Western norms. Poignant ballets and operas, rather than sensual musicals, fill the billboard and sincerity, often mistaken for seriousness, is prized over polite spectacles.
Besides the seduction of the enigmatic Russian soul, there are countless reasons to visit the largest country in the world. Its pristine forests are ripe territory for explorers with a thirst for adventure and wondrous scenery. The towns and cities are hidden treasures for history buffs. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, both religion and art have flourished, reviving the rich legacy left by the Russian Empire.
