The climate and clothing

The summer is warm were, the average temperature is 17 °C (63 °F), so you don’t need to take woolen sweaters and warm boots, but we would still recommend to take jacket and closed footwear in case it gets rainy or windy. During the summer, 20 °C (68 °F) is common during the day while 14 °C (57 °F) is common at night. If you are planning to come at the winter, late autumn or early spring please not that it might be cold at that time, so jacket and sneakers is not enough. Average temperature in January is −6 °C (21 °F). Some winters can be very cold, −20 °C (−4 °F) occurs almost every winter. Winter extremes are from −30 °C to −35 °C, but it doesn’t happen every winter and if it does it lasts for a short period of time. We recommend you to take a winter coat, winter boots, gloves, scars and a hat, especially if you are not used to cold. Even in autumn or spring, the temperature might be below zero, sometimes at the winter time it might get very cold and snowy. Weather forecast:
