Despite bitterly cold winters, Russia is a great destination to visit year round. The summers are long and warm with fantastically long days especially in St Petersburg when the phenomenon of the 'white nights' appears. The winters despite being bitterly cold bring with them a beautiful winter wonderland when the Russians bring out their classic fur hats, warm coats and the need for lots more vodka! Autumn too is a great time to visit when stunning golden hues are all around and the weather is still not too cold.
In preparation for the World Cup in 2018 Russia is due to hold the 2017 Confederations Cup. The Confederations Cup sees the hosts (Russia) take on a host of games against fellow nations who have won their respective confederation cups for their continent as well as current world champions Germany. This cup is due to be played between 17 June and 2nd July 2017 in venues across the country including Moscow and St Petersburg as well as the lesser visited cities of Kazan and Sochi.
