Moscow, Russia

Best time to visit Moscow is May-June when lilac is blooming everywhere. It is not even about the lilac - there are other factors... However, Moscow weather is unfavorable most of the time and so unpredictable that you have to be lucky to catch the magic of the city in any time of the year. Note though, that weather in St. Petersburg (former Leningrad) is even worse.
