Abnormally warm weather in Moscow will last all weekend. According to weather forecasters, on Saturday and Sunday the thermometer will rise to 26 degrees during the day, and at night it is expected to reach +13, which is seven to eight degrees above normal. As Kommersant FM found out, against this background, booking of outdoor recreation places has intensified. At the same time, many organizations, due to record heat and increased demand, decided not to offer seasonal discounts.
“Kommersant FM” talked to representatives of the entertainment and recreation industry and found out their expectations for this weekend.
Founder of the Meat & Fish chain Sergei Mironov: “In Moscow, the verandas began to close at some point, because people were “full” of fresh air. And now such good weather has opened a second wind for summer verandas, and many establishments are fully booked this weekend. In addition, while it’s warm, many people are finishing their vacations.”
Olga, representative of glamping “Under the Sky”: “Unfortunately, everything is already booked for this weekend. As for the last weekend in September, there are still half of the safari tents available. The cost of a tour for two for one night in an all-inclusive format will be 45.8 thousand rubles. In addition to accommodation, this includes three meals a day; the chef prepares an original menu for our guests every day. There is also a bar with non-alcoholic and light alcoholic drinks, and water activities are freely available. You can ride SUP boards, kayaks, and rowing boats. Morning yoga classes are included in the price, and in the evening you can roast marshmallows by the fire.”
Owner of the Baikal Yachts Group shipyard Sergey Gmyra: “There are still vacancies for this weekend. There are few cases when people call and book the same day. But most likely it will be like this tomorrow if the weather really continues to be good. People will start calling and renting what they have and what's left. These are mainly small boats and yachts. Wealthy clients choose yachts of 20 m or more, which, unfortunately, are very few in number. Renting a vessel will cost 20 thousand rubles. per hour or more depending on size.”
Director of the Moscow Country Club golf club Maria Bazhenova: “Due to good weather, we notice more guests, active club members. As for prices, playing on an 18-hole course costs 14 thousand rubles on a weekend. You can also play on the driving range and have a lesson with a golf coach. It will cost 7 thousand rubles. for one person. You can also organize a group lesson, it all depends on the number of people. There is still an opportunity to sign up for the coming weekend.”
