Hi everyone,
Me and my partner are visiting St Petersburg between 24th to 30th(we are so excited) .
The temperature seems that it's going to be between 3 to minus 7. We are travelling light usually and we were wondering if thermal unders and then different layers are enough for the cold? Including Cap, gloves and boots with thermal socks.
Thanks in advance :)
Looking forward to visit your history and beauty.

I suppose, layered look with thermal extra under would be quite right, just don't forget about precipitations and wear something water- and windproof outside,not only just warm.If your woolen mittens become wet,it's not nice at all,so keep an extra pair in your backpack, and have a good trip to our city!)

Hi! All that you mentioned seems to be enough! The thing here is because of our high humidity a cold weather feels even colder, but cap gloves boots, warm jacket all that will help! you will be alright, it is just minus 7 not minus 27 :)

Hi, Nikolaos,
Your plan is good. Please keep in mind that due to the high humidity even minus 3 to 7 may seem very cold. If you have a down parka - you will be warm and comfortable wearing it. Don’t forget warm scarves!

Hi Nikolaos, the temperature itself plays 50% of the whole feeling, please take into consideration the himidity is really high and that is why you feel more cold. Eventually I would prefer to wear not only thermal underwear but a down jacket as well. Wool/cashmere cap, scarves and gloves would be a proper choice, as well as waterproof shoes/boots with thermal socks. Obviously while visiting museums you can wear light clothes but spending the day walking around in the city........ - please think of taking some warmer clothes with you.
