Moscow has 5 different airports, three of them international. Sheremetyevo Airport (SVO, Domodedovo Airport (DMW) and Vnukovo Airport (VKO) are the three international. Zhukovsky Airport (ZIA) services low cost airlines and charters and Ostafyevo serves as Russia’s only business airport (whatever that means).
All airports are connected by the Aeroexpress train which run between 5 am and 12:30 am. Between those hours you will need to take a taxi into the city. It is advisable to book something ahead of time in this instance.
A great way to travel Russia is via train. Whether you’re just coming from one city or you’re taking the Trans Siberian/Mongolian train journey, the trains are a fun and easy mode of transport and usually much cheaper than a flight.
Note that all times are listed in Moscow time. Not so hard in Moscow but Russia has 11 different time zones, so, pay attention the farther away you are. More to come soon on the Trans Siberian/Mongolian Railway trip!
Tickets can be bought ahead of time online or in the station from a machine or from the counter. If you’re buying from the counter, note that many people do not speak English.
Once here, it’s easy to get around via public transportation using the very accessible metro system which has also recently added signs in English due to hosting the World Cup back in 2018.
