What to do in russia in 10 days
In 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 have. Temperatures are likely to be below freezing in major cities for most of your stay, except in more southerly locations such as Sochi, where it usually averages 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.

In Russia every season has its charm. From June to the end of August you can enjoy the beautiful Russian summer with all the bars and restaurants open 24 hours, and you can also see a natural phenomenon: the white nights that start in mid-June and end in mid-July in the city of St. Petersburg. During the white nights the sun hardly sets. Taking advantage of this special season, the city does not sleep either.
Three months of spring: from the first rays in March, from the thaw in April to the joyful awakening of nature in May. During this time all the flora and fauna are preparing for a period of growth and flowering.
