In the central part of Russia summer becomes warm--even hot--which makes possible for a good harvest of grain, fruit and vegetables. By the way, in Russia the real warmth does not start until the middle of April. And only in the end of May does everything start to bloom and people go without their warm clothing. Well, in Norilsk it may take longer, as we are in Siberia, and we are the northernmost city in the world!
Summers can be very hot even in places where winters are very cold. The seasons change is dramatic. For example, in Vladivostok, the record low is −31.4 C and the record high was 33.6 C. High humidity makes the summers feel even hotter. In Norilsk, we recently reached almost 30 C!
What I love most about the summer in Norilsk is that sun shines with a special bright and the blue skies get even more blue.
I know that it may be a shock for a few, but the sky at Norilsk, is as blue as it may be in any other part of the world
