Russia is a country with continental climate, which means that the climate is relatively constant for most of the country. Seasons are very distinct and temperatures do not drop dramatically overnight. You might be surprised to know that in Siberia summer can be very hot! With temperatures sometimes up to +30°C. The coldest part of Russia is its north-east, where temperatures in winter can drop to -46°C… It is definitely below minus degrees in winter in Russia, whichever place you go, so please dress warmly!
That’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed the lesson.
