Airports

As you may know in Moscow city there are 3 different airports - Sheremetyevo, Domodedovo and Vnukovo. The best and fastest way to get to the airport to the City Center (or City Centre - Airport) is by Aeroexpress. Just come to one of three Vokzals (Railway Station) in the Center of Moscow and in 35 min you will be at the airport. You can find the destinations below:

 

from Belorusskiy Vokzal to Sheremet’evo

from Paveletskiy Vokzal to Domodedovo

from Kievskiy Vokzal to Vnukovo

 

You may buy a ticket and find all information regarding Aeroexpress HERE.

Taxi

We highly recommend you to discuss the price before you get on the car, the price should be fixed, not by meters, otherwise you might be ripped off by dishonest drivers.

If you have Data Plan (cell phone wih local simcard or your simecard) working in Russia, it is the easiest way to book taxi through the apps:

Uber Taxi (although it runs in Russia, they have less available cars than local apps)

GetTaxi  (has many cars available, usually it takes 5 mins to find a car)

Yandex Taxi  (it is the local app offering cars in 2-3 mins)

Local currency exchange

We don't recommend you to exchange a big amout of money to local currency at the airport. The exchange rate is very low

You will need some cash of local Rubles to pay for taxi or food and beverage at the airport. 

Once you arrive to the center of Moscow, you will find many exchange offices open daily at better rate or ATM machines to draw a cash

WARNING!!! PICKPOCKETS!!!

Moscow is very safe city, you can walk around even at night and feel safe. But unfortunately Moscow's pickpockets are the most talented, you won't notice a lost of your wallet from your unzipped or back pockets of your jeans. Please, be careful in the crowded places

Metro

Best and impressive restaurants to go: 

 

 

Puskin  http://www.cafe-pushkin.ru/en/

one of the best restaurants in Moscow of high class and Russian cuisine.

Over priced though :)

 

 

Restaurants with great panorama views:

 

City Space bar   

http://cityspacebar.com/

located in Swissotel on 34th floor with 360 degree view of the city.

It is a great place, almost in the center of Moscow, famous for great cocktails (not so much food).

Dresscode: casual, classical (not sport clothing)

Not cheap :) 

 

Restaurant 60 (sixty)

http://ginza.ru/msk/restaurant/Sixty

Located on 60 th floor of Moscow City business center. The highest in Europe!

Little bit out of Moscow center, hard to find if you are not local :) that is why your tour guide can take you there after your tour.

There the panoramic view of Moscow is more exciting, as shows the whole city, they have better menu to eat, not really Russian cuisine.

Not cheap, but not too over priced.

Dress code: casual, classical (no sport clothes).
