Moscow - Zelenograd, Russia, September 12-16, 2011
ARRIVAL IN MOSCOW
Moscow has three major international aeroports, Sheremetyevo, Domodedovo, and Vnukovo and seven train stations (vokzals), Leningradskij, Yaroslavskij, Kazanskij, Belorusskij, Kurskij, Paveletskij, and Rizskij. Airoprts are located outside of Moscow and travel from them to the downtown may take from one to several hours depending on your destination and traffic situation. Train stations are located not far from the downtown in a few minutes of travel by metro. There is train and bus transportation from the airports to various destinations in Moscow. While train and bus transportation is cheap and reliable, its use may not be straightforward for someone who arrives in Moscow first time and does not speak Russian. If you have a colleague in Moscow who offers you assistance in transportation from airoport - take his/her offer without hesitation, and if you arrive at the week day, taking train may be the best option, since you may spend several hours in a traffic jump for which Moscow is well known.
TRANSPORTATION FROM/TO THE AIROPORT
You can reserve transportation from/to the airport or rent car with the driver from the
Moscow City Booking and Travel Centre . For booking,
please, contact Marina Astapchik.
If you indicate that you are from the Nano and Giga Conference
and you want to share a ride on the van, Marina will try to combine people
who come at the same time, and your cost will be much lower.
Representative of the company will meet you near the Exit from the Custom
Zone with the special card or other sign/name which you specify in your
phone call or e-mail/fax message. Please, arrange the transportation in
advance and provide your name, flight number, and arrival time to avoid problems.
TRANSPORTATION TO MOSCOW STATE UNIVERSITY
The best way to travel in Moscow is to take metro (subway). It is fast, clean, and safe. A single entry costs less than a dollar and you can spend a whole day there for a buck!
You may buy travel cupons in any quantities. Announcements and names of the staions are in Russian
but orientation is easy and people are friendly and you can get help immediately if you ask for direction to your destination.
Spend a few minutes to study Moscow Metro Map and print an English
version to compare with the Russian one.
