Understand

Moscow is the capital of Russia. It has a population of around 11 million, and covers an area of around 900 square kilometres.

Get in

By plane

Moscow has 4 airports; Sheremetyevo International Airport, Domodedovo International Airport, Bykovo Airport, and Vnukovo Airport.

By train

Moscow lies at the western end of the Trans-Siberian Railway from Beijing, Ulaanbaatar and Vladivostok. You can reach here from almost anywhere in Europe and Central Asia.

By car

It is not advisable to come to Moscow by car. Foreign cars tend to attract unwelcome attention, and there is cumbersome paperwork involved.

By bus

Eurolines operate coach services into Moscow. Typical fares would be £10 (one-way) to Riga,Latvia, or £60 to London in the United Kingdom.

Get around

Central Moscow is best explored on foot, but the visitor will most likely use the famous Metro system. It is comprehensive, boasts some great architecture, and is quite cheap. A trip costs 10 rubles/$0.35.
