Today I am sharing my packing guide for Russia! We will be heading to Moscow and St. Petersburg and ending our trip in Finland for a couple of nights. I am SO excited to share our Russia (and Finland) guide when we get back to the states!
I thought it would be fun and helpful to share what I’m packing for this trip. This list won’t include any makeup or toiletries. I always use the same products whether I’m home or traveling. If you have questions about those items, just let me know, I’m happy to share! You can find my entire list of long-haul flight essentials here!
WHAT I’M PACKING FOR RUSSIA
SUMMER WEATHER IN RUSSIA
The weather in Russia seems similar to weather in the northern United States in the summer. Chilly in the mornings & evenings and warm during the day. The highs hang around the mid-80s and the lows drop into the 50s. I’ll be bringing a mostly neutral color palette, with a couple pairs of jeans, shorts, tops and a couple of dressier options. Usually I only bring 2-3 pairs of shoes, but I’ll be brining a dressier pair, bringing my total to four pairs. Check out my packing guide for Russia below!
