The climate of Moscow (Russia)
Moscow is the capital of Russia and is situated in the European part of Russia. Moscow is the most important city of the country. It is also the largest city in the country with a surface area of more than 2,500 square kilometers and more than 10 million residents. The former Communist center became one of the most expensive cities in the world when it converted to capitalism. The fear that the difference between rich and poor would increase have come true. A large part of the residents is poor and lives in one of the many ugly buildings that were built during the time of the iron curtain. The center is the playground for a handful of extremely rich Russians that made their money with the export of oil.
Moscow has a moderate continental climate with cold winters and warm summers. From December till February the Red Square and the streets of Moscow are covered in snow. Temperatures are -5 to -15 degrees Celsius on average. However, temperatures may even drop lower. During the frosty period a large amount of the homeless dies on the streets. When spring starts in April temperatures rapidly rise. Because of the absence of a tempering influence of the sea temperatures may rise to 40 degrees during the summer.
