[[Image:Lipetsk1.JPG|thumb|250px]] '''Lipetsk''' (population 508,000) is the capital of [[Lipetsk Oblast]] of [[Russia]].
==Understand==
 
Lipetsk is a big industrial center with agricultural background and provincial atmosphere, despite its half million population. The city was founded in the beginning of 18th century, but became a growing regional capital only in 1954, when [[Lipetsk Oblast]] was formed. That is why it lacks architectural heritage and cultural legacy.
 
Traditionally, Lipetsk has been one of the most socialistic cities in Russia. For some 10-15 years after Soviet Union collapse the city authorities provided free public transport and telephone service for locals. This costed additional tax to the city business. Now the situation has changed: [[Lipetsk Oblast]] became one of Russian 6 Special Economic Zones with tax reduction for local companies.
 
Visited mainly by business travellers, Lipetsk is not a major tourist destination. So, while you are in business trip you can discover the provincial charm of this city. You can also use Lipetsk as a convenient stopover in a road trip from [[Moscow]] to [[Southern Russia]] or escape there for a weekend from hustle and bustle of [[Moscow]].

=== By air ===
Lipetsk has a domestic airport, which serves flights to [[Moscow]] (daily), [[Saint Petersburg]] (2 times a week), [[Sochi]], [[Anapa]], and [[Kostroma]] (weekly). Flights are quite expensive: a one-way ride from [[Moscow]] costs 4,000 RUR.
=== By train ===
=== By bus ===
Lipetsk has a good bus connection with Moscow. Several private operators provide 7-10 daily trips from Paveletskaya metro station of [[Moscow]] to Lipetsk train station and back. Expect 8 hours to go, 600-700 RUR / 15-18 EUR to pay and loud video in the coach for all the way.
Bus collisions are regularly reported on southern directions, so be attentive taking this risk.
=== By car ===
Depending on traffic, the road to Lipetsk can take 5-8 hours from [[Moscow]]. Take M4 road to [[Rostov-naon-Donuthe-Don]] and turn left to Lipetsk soon after [[Yelets]]. Alternatively, turn from M4 to M6 road after [[Kashira]], then turn right to Lipetsk after some 200+ km drive. This second way is shorter in kilometres, but worse in road quality and traffic.
