International flights arrive either to Sheremetievo airport or Domodedovo airport which are located relatively far from the center. In both cases, it is recommended to take the rapid train called "AeroExpress" (follow the red signs "Moscow by train"). One way ticket costs 320 rubles. Trains are scheduled each half an hour (see the timetables for Sheremetievo and Domodedovo airports), and the trip takes around 45 minutes. Note that taxi may be extremely expensive (and will NOT be reimboursed) and much longer because of traffic.

Metro is the fastest transport in Moscow (here is the metro plan). It is recommended to buy the magnetic card for 10 or 20 trips (265 and 520 rubles, respectively).


The only accepted currency is rubles. There are a lot of exchange offices where you can exchange euro to rubles. The exchange rate is variable (around 41.5 rubles per euro at the beginning of September 2011). It is strongly unadvisable to exchange the currency at the aeroport because the rate is significantly lower. Please note that some exchange offices take extra commissions (few percent or/and fixed amount).
