Travel the Black Sea

The Black Sea is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Russia. The north-east coastline of the Black Sea that’s occupied by Russian resort towns and cities sees many travellers from Russia and around the world stay in the hotels, enjoy the varied cuisines on offer in the restaurants, tour the natural points of interest, visit the exciting parks, and sit on the beach to enjoy the Black Sea in all of its splendour.

To help you narrow down where to stay for your holiday to the Black Sea, we’ve broken down many of the most popular destinations in Russia, including the world-famous Sochi.

But first, it’s important that you know what climate to expect when you go, and then what you can expect in the great settlements lining the Black Sea.

What’s the climate along Russia’s Black Sea coastline?

When thinking of Russia, thoughts of cold winds and snow comes to mind; but along the Black Sea coastline, temperatures in Russia can reach highs of 29°C.

From December through to the end of March, you’ll encounter temperatures as low as 2°C with highs of 10°C to 12°C. There is also a lot of precipitation during these winter months. In April, it tends to heat up a bit, continuing through May until the pleasing warmth of June arrives.
