The landscape here is very different and it looks like as the nature made it specially for making parks: hills, ridges and terraces change with valleys and plains; forests are changed by fields. A lot of springs give the beginning for streams and feed the ponds.

The high disposition of Pushkin above the sea makes the specific micro climate. It has not the influence of the Finish bay and the cyclones of Atlantic and that is why it has the average sum of fall out less than in St. - Petersburg , which are gotten by the air (it's about 550 mm), it has more sunnies and uncloudies days. A lot of green trees and nature also has a great influence for climate. The winds are weaker under the trees' crowns, it is less the fluctuations of the days and years temperatures.

In Pushkin it is brightly shown 4 seasons.

Winter:it's from December till March. During the snowing winter Pushkin has the especial beauty. Winter days are short and they give the city the especial light.

Вот север, тучи нагоняя,
Дохнул, завыл - и вот сама
Идет волшебница зима.
Пришла, рассыпалась; клоками
Повисла на суках дубов;
Легла волнистыми коврами
Среди полей, вокруг холмов;
Брега с недвижною рекою
Сравняла пухлой пеленою;
Блеснул мороз. И рады мы
Проказам матушки зимы.

Spring: it's April and May. Spring is the wonderful season when the evenings become lighter . The weather in spring is very capricious and sometimes summer begins at the end of April. The temperature is between +5 and +15 C.

Гонимы вешними лучами,
С окрестных гор уже снега
Сбежали мутными ручьями
На потопленные луга.
Улыбкой ясною природа
Сквозь сон встречает утро года;
Синея блещут небеса.

In summer there is particular lighting. The days are long and the nights are short. From the end of June till the beginning of July it does not get dark. The charming time of "White nights" begins.

Друзья мои, как утро здесь прекрасно!
В тиши полей, сквозь тайну сень дубрав,
Как юный день сияет гордо, ясно!
Светлеет всё; друг друга перегнав,
Журчат ручьи, блестят брега безмолвны;
Еще роса над свежей муравой;
Златых озер недвижно дремлют волны.

Autumn:it's from September till November. The city is very beautiful in the decoration of the autumn leaflets. The air is clean and limpid. The temperature is between +5 and +18 C. It's cool in the evening.

Унылая пора! Очей очарованье»
Приятна мне твоя прощальная краса -
Люблю я пышное природы увяданье,
В багрец и золото одетые леса,
В их сенях ветра шум и свежее дыханье,
И мглой волнистою покрыты небеса,
И редкий солнца луч, и первые морозы,
И отдаленные седой зимы угрозы.
