Due to the presence of such a cooling factor as the glaciers of the Caucasus, Kislovodsk, became a favorite place of rest and treatment for thousands of people from the regions of the Caucasus and Central Asia, and even Israel (at the reception which specializes in spa Plaza). During summer in these regions, the temperature rises to 40 degrees and even higher. The same applies to the adjacent more southern republics: Dagestan, . The climate in these especially in Dagestan and Azerbaijan, as summer is not entirely comfortable for life.
Against this background, the coolness of Kislovodsk in the summer and warm in the winter makes this city truly unique in our country.

Ring of mountains surrounding the Kislovodsk makes it protected from hot winds of the steppes and semidesert of Stavropol and Kalmykia.

Humidity and rainfall in the city determined by the situation with a cloud over Main Caucasian ridge. Saturated there clouds bring summer and winter precipitation in the city.
But apart from the mountains just affect rainfall and cyclones coming from the Black Sea coast and the Mediterranean.
