Since Russia is something over 10,000,000 square miles in size you should narrow down the question by saying where in Russia you are visiting; also, what types of activities you are doing.

Kayaking on the Lena River in north Siberia would require a different outfit than ballet in Novosibirsk or Moscow.

The tempetures will run 70's in the day and 50-60's at night, generally. As for type of clothing I would say what you would wear with similar weather in your home.

As an aside, are you sure of the route, as I didn't know of any cruises that go in both international and Russian waterways?

Did Princess Cruise last year August - Helsinki, St. Petersburg, etc. not Moscow. Layer. Short sleeves with long-sleeve over-shirt or sweater. Linen slacks for me; dockers for DH. In other words, basic classic European travel wear (as opposed to American beach wear).

Hi all,
Recently I finished a special site for the first time travellers to Moscow, Russia.
You can find there a lot of useful information and accommodation for your visit.
Best regards and see you in Moscow,
Alexander.

Hi, Davis

My husband and I went on the Russian Waterways cruise last summer at the end of June into July. As a matter of fact, we were at Peter the Great's wonderful Summer Palace right on the 4th of July when musicians played The Star Spangeled Banner for our group.
Dress as already suggested. Be sure to have comfortable walking shoes because if your schedule is the same as ours was, you will be doing a lot of walking- -interesting walking. There will be some waiting in lines, as well when comfortable footwear will be important.
I would suggest something for mosquito protection, as along the narrow canals where the land is very close on either side of the boat, the mosquito problem can be quite serious. Simply make sure the window in your cabin is closed, and most of the problem will be diminished.
Enjoy your adventure!
Jane
