Mineralnye Vody is a city in Stavropol Krai famous for its literary history and its health spas/sanatoria.
It is easy to get to Mineralnye Vody by flying directly from Moscow, Saint Petersburg, or certain other large Russian airports. Note, however, that MinVody's airport is very strange and run by especially corrupt authorities. The airport is weirdly cold and uncomfortable. Moreover, they sell Caucasian daggers and swords behind the security check, so people are just carrying those souvenirs on board — that's either a good sign (that there haven't been any problems?) or a very bad sign (the officials do not care).
Taxi minivans are widely available for a small fee. There are no buses in this town. Be careful riding the taxi as drivers are crazy and there are a lot of accidents because of them.
Some american may have trouble in this area and treated unfairly by local police.
