Get in

By train

Trains leave from Kazansky station in Moscow approximately every hour. The fare is 198 RUB as of June 2012. There are two types of trains: most go to Golutvin (Голутвин) station and take 2 hours and 20 minutes. There are also expresses to Ryazan stopping in Kolomna that are slightly faster and take a little less than two hours.

The main train station, Golutvin, is not located in the centre of the city, it takes around 45-50 minutes on foot to get there. The station called Kolomna is closer to the city centre, it's the penultimate stop on Moscow-Golutvin route.

By bus

Buses (number 460, Moscow-Golutvin) from Moscow cost around 230 RUB and depart more often but there's a risk to get stuck in a traffic jam around the border of Moscow city. The bus station in Kolomna is near the Golutvin train station.

Airports

Note, that for meet and greet in any Moscow airport, all taxi companies based in Kolomna require 100% advance payment.

  • Domodedovo airport- the closest airport to Kolomna, about 90 km away.
  • Vnukovo airport- located about 140 km from Kolomna.
  • Sheremetyevo airport- this is the furthest of the three Moscow airports from Kolomna, about 150 km away.


Get around

There are buses and trams in Kolomna. Most of them are quite new and contain electronic displays with the names of the stations. The city is relatively small so the route map found on the wall of bus stops is comprehendable. The single ride fare is 23 RUB.

As in many Russian towns, there are several competing taxi companies in Kolomna. Fare is 100 - 120 rubles on business days, 120 - 150 rubles on weekends. A list of local taxi companies in Russian [1].
