Average yearly temperatures of nearly all of the European Russia are below freezing. The fact that Russia is located in the northern and middle latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere, most of Russia is much closer to the North Pole than to the equator which effects their temperature. Russia has only two seasons, summer and winter, with a very short interval of moderation between them. There are exceptions, such as, the climate of Kaliningrad Oblast on the Baltic Sea, which is similar to that of America’s northwest and the Russian Far East, which is under the influence of the Pacific Ocean. Additionally, there is a narrow, subtropical band of territory on the Black Sea that provides a summer resort area.
