Copenhagen,Helsinki,St. Petersburg in mid September

Jump to last reply

I am travelling in mid - September, along with 2 friends, on an organized and escorted tour that goes to Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Veliky Novgorod and Moscow. The itinerary is already set, but I'd like some advice on currencies, what to expect weather- wise, and some tips on dress codes in Russian churches.
Since all 4 countries use different currencies - Danish kronen, Swedish kronen, Euros in Finland, and rubles in Russia -- is it best to purchase a bit of each currency at home in Toronto, Canada, and then use ATM's in each country to get additional cash ? I thought I'd pay cash for small day- to- day stuff and use a credit card for larger purchases.
Can anyone tell me what the weather is usually like in that area in mid to end of September ?Some guidebooks say to bring along gloves and a warm hat, Is it really that chilly at that time of year ?
Finally - I've read that some Russian churches don't allow women to enter without a head covering, or when wearing pants. Does anyone know for sure ?
Any information on these topics would be greatly appreciated -- this trip has been on my bucket list for a long time, and I can't wait to go.
Thanks !
