    Luggage and bags: Winter in Moscow is not as cool as people say it is. All you will need is and good winter jacket and sweater's.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Please keep in mind men there do not wear fur coat's. And when you get there it would be a good idea for you to buy a hat like Tim's (at the picture).

    Where is General Winter?

    the messy season

    Luggage and bags: Many people wonder what happened to the fierce winters that once cursed and yet protected Russia in centuries past? Due to global warming, Russian winters just are not as cold as they used to be.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In Moscow, there is almost a constant freeze and thaw cycle during the winter. The therometer dips to minus 15 Celcius, and for a time everything is frozen, and then a few days later it is back up above freezing, and everything thaws.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: This constant freezing and thawing means everything is wet, dirty, slippery and sometimes dangerous. Either you're stepping gingerly around mud puddles that form at every sidewalk crossing or you're getting splashed by the cars as they roar by.

    Photo Equipment: Even getting in and out of the car or on and off the bus it can be hard not to brush up against the side of the vehicle getting you dirty.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Therefore, I would recommend that you wear darker colors that do not show the dirt as much, and that you wear good, steady winter boots with water proof, non-slip soles.

    Miscellaneous: There are dry cleaners at or near most major supermarkets where you can get your trousers and jackets cleaned if need be. The cost is reasonable, but it usually takes about 3-5 days to get your clothes back. The hotel may be able to do this for you quicker, but it will cost much more.

    Don't forget your space suit

    Moscow - the final frontier

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Russians can be called up for space duty at any time by the State. Foreigners too can sometimes be given free trips into space - so the best thing is to take your own custom-made space suit into Russia (or buy one there) in case it happens.

    Packing List

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Needless to say, if you go in the Winter, it can get bitterly cold. On a cold, windy day a hat and gloves are required. There will be lots of ice on the sidewalk, so boots may be in order. Summers can be quite hot, occasionally getting up to the mid-90s so bring some light clothing.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: It is recommended that you bring all of the documentation that goes with prescription drugs and be prepared to show it at Customs if necessary.
