Russia on a Budget

Flights from North America to Russia can be quite expensive. To save on airfare, book a flight departing during shoulder season or winter. Russia is a vast country, but train travel is an affordable and convenient way to get from place to place if you're looking to sightsee extensively. Additionally, many travel providers offer discounted package tours to Russia, which is often a budget-friendly way to see the country. (Additionally, a package tour will make organizing your trip much easier, as planning a vacation in Russia can be a daunting task.)

Best Time to Go to Russia

Russian winters are long and cold -- but travelers seeking great deals and winter activities shouldn't let frigid temperatures stop them. Russia is beautiful in the snow, and many worthwhile winter festivals take place in the country during the colder months of the year. Summer is the most popular season for tourism to Russia, with autumn a close second. No matter which time of year you visit, it's important to plan ahead. All foreign travelers need a visa to enter Russia.
