Most of the territory of Russia is located in a cold climatic zone with long and harsh winters. And the inhabitants of the temperate zone are not spoiled by really warm weather. It is not surprising that Russians dream of a vacation in the south. Swim in the warm sea, sunbathe, eat plenty of fruit, admire the lush southern nature, finally. But, alas, this is costly and not everyone can afford.
Think about where you want to relax: within Russia or abroad. In the second case, you will again have to make a choice: whether this is the territory of the CIS (for example, Crimea), or the Far Abroad. In this case, you will need a foreign passport.
Suppose you decide to relax on the South Sea without leaving the territory of Russia. Then the choice is not great: it is either the coast of the Sea of Azov, or the coast of the Black Sea (Krasnodar Territory). Rest on the Azov coast has the following advantages: the sea is very shallow, so it warms up better. The water in it is always warmer than in the Black Sea. And the prices for accommodation in hotels, as well as in the private sector, are lower than in the Krasnodar Territory. Minus: the nature of the Azov coast is very scarce, monotonous, you will not see the lush beauty of the south. The Black Sea coast is much more beautiful, but the price level, unfortunately, does not always correspond to the service.
In any case, try to find an economical vacation option in advance. It is better to negotiate directly with the owner of a private hotel or a householder who rents out rooms to vacationers. Do not use the services of all kinds of intermediaries, because in this case, the cost of rest will increase. Information about the cost of various rental housing options in a particular locality can be found on the Internet or by talking with people who have already rested there.
If you are severely limited in funds, look for the cheapest option for housing such as a private house with a toilet and shower in the yard. Remember that the further from the sea the house is located, the lower the prices should be.
In the event that you want to have an inexpensive vacation abroad, you should opt for Turkey. But it is better to go there not in summer, when it is very hot, and very high prices for tickets, but at the end of the beach season - in October. The water in the Mediterranean Sea (Antalya - Kemer - Alania region) is still very warm at this time of the year, and prices are much lower.
Choose an economy class hotel. Lush nature, good service, abundance of fruits, free entry (a visa is issued right at the airport of arrival, and free of charge) - what else do you need for a good rest? Moreover, if you manage to buy a "last minute" ticket, your vacation will turn out to be really cheap.
