The Russians called St. Petersburg the best city in Russia where you can relax on the weekend. This is stated in the study of the service “Rabota.ru”, which is at the disposal of “Lenta.ru”.
The study involved more than five thousand service users over 18 years old from all regions of the country. Most of the respondents are attracted by St. Petersburg – 41 percent of respondents supported it. Almost a quarter (24 percent) would like to spend a few days in Moscow.
Russians would also go to the coast for a weekend – 17 percent chose Sochi, and 14 percent of respondents considered Kaliningrad as a good location for two days, another 10 percent wanted to Kazan. Other cities were named in the study, but received less than 10 percent of the vote.
In July 2021, Russians compiled an anti-rating of cities for recreation within the country. Anapa was considered the worst city for a vacation due to high prices and a large crowd of people. Also, Adler was included in the list of unloved cities for vacations, where vacationers were outraged by the paid toilets.
