What to wear in St Petersburg

We'll be there soon (in 2 weeks,yikes) so I wonder if any experts out there can suggest what to wear?

Have never been in the spring so can;t provide details. But I do know the winter is VERY long - and we were there 2nd week in September and temps were in the 40's a couple of days (had been 70 in Stockholm) and the locals were wearing their winter coats.

So check average temps - but be prepared with extra layers if necessary.

Traveling you should always dress as a "kapusta"(cabbage)- many layers. We had a wonderfully dry trip this past fall- the previous trip (same 2 weeks in the fall) it rained all day, every day. So one can never fairly guess.

I would imagine temps in the 50s on cold days, 60s-70s on warm days.

Russian spring/summer can be fabulous- definitely expect some nice sunny days, bring a light coat, comfortable walking shoes... lots of nice shops in Piter if you need to pick something up, too!!

Apologies to the OP...


Do you know any good web sites for Russian food? I've lost my one cookbook!

Underhill: I wish I coud be of more assistance- for the most part, I use a Russian cookbook I bought in Moscow and one from Ukraine, as well. I will say that www.russianfoods.com has some traditional recipes that sound similar to the way I would make them.

Good luck- if you read Cyrillic, let me know- there are some others out there!
