Most of people on the streets won't probably speak English with you if you need help. Don't think of them as being rude or not hospitable. Many of young people can speak English but they are afraid of talking to foreigners. It may sound ridiculous but it's true. It's just a matter of whom you run into. However, it 's recommended to go to Novosibirsk with someone who understands Russian or to learn some Russian before you go . Older people tend not to speak foreign languages at all but it really depends on whom you run into. There are a lot of people who can communicate in English. So it's just a matter of you luck.
Flights are handled by the '''Tolmachevo Airport''' [http://tolmachevo.ru], 16km away from city center. S7 Airlines is the major airline here and have domestic flights to most cities in Russia. Aeroflot also have direct flights from Moscow. Bus #111 connects the airport with the major train station "Novosibirsk-Glavny" (Новосибирск-Главный) and Avtovokzal (Автовокзал), the bus terminal (each 30 min). Bus #112 since 06.2011 connects the airport with shopping mall "Mega" (IKEA). Also minibus #1122 shuttles between the airport and main train station.
Novosibirsk is a major station on the [[Trans-Siberian Railway]], in fact the '''Vokzal-Glavny''' (Вокзал-Главный) station is the largest station along the route. This means that there are daily trains avalible from [[Moscow]] and Saint-Petersburg with a journey time of 2-3 days. Coming from the other direction, there are direct trains from [[Beijing]], [[Ulaan Baator]] and [[Vladivostok]] amongst others. Also, Novosibirsk is also the final destination of the ''Sibirjak'' express train, the longest train journey originating in the European Union. This weekly train leaves [[Berlin]] each Saturday afternoon and arrives Wednesday at lunch time. Apart from the long-distance trains there are plenty of local and regional trains connecting with most nearby cities. Vokzal-Glavny station is very close to the ''Garina Mikhailovskogo'' (Гарина Михайловского) Metro stop.

There is a lot of public transport in this city. Everywhere you will pay from 13 to 30 rubles (it depends from your change of transport). Taxis, metro, buses, street railways or trams and so on. Most citizens can't speak even basic English (although almost all of them were taught English in schools). Very often
it depends from some English accents of tourists , I mean, misunderstanding each other.
The Metro [http://www.nsk-metro.ru] is cheap but only runs through the city center and just past the Ob River. Still, for the visitor, you can get to many major destinations from its six major stops, including the main square, Lenin Square, on Krasny Prospekt (Red Avenue).
