Question from Michelle:
Olga, if you would be kind to answer my question, I will be arriving via Domedovo (Moscow ) airport heading towards Kremlin and Im planning to take the aeroroport express train. Please guide me how.
1. Take the aeroexpress from Domodedovo airport to Paveletsky railway terminal.
2. When you arrive to Moscow almost all the people from aeroexpress will go in the same direction – to the metro, just follow them. The entrance to the metro station Paveletskaya (radial, green line) is located in the train terminal.
John: I need to get to Northern River Boat Station Leningradsky Prospekt, Khimki . What is the travel time difference if I come into Domodedovo International Airport or into Sheremetyevo International Airport ?
Sheremetyevo is preferable. By taxi it will take not more than 30-40 min. There are dispatchers at the airport. Negotiate a fixed fare before you board the taxi. Besides, you can take a bus #851 (or minibus #949) to the Metro station Rechnoy vokzal. How to get from the metro to Boat Station is described here:
This post will explain you how to get from the Moscow Kremlin to the Kievsky terminal or precisely to Vnukovo (VKO) aeroexpress terminal.
Let us start from the Russian state library. We have seen the Kremlin museums, from the central part of Alexander gardens entered the underpass, passed it to the end and once outside looked at F. Dostoevsky monument on the left. Now, please, follow my arrows.
We need to enter the metro station Arbatskaya.
First Moscow Sleepbox Hotel is located on 1st Tverskaya-Yamskaya St opposite Marriott Hotel and in the close vicinity of Belirussky railway station. The place was chosen not by chance: the terminal is, in turn, connected by Aeroexpress to the airport Sheremetyevo.
Good idea, if to change the price list.
I’ve got a question:
– Olga, we are flying into Moscow airport Domodedovo (DME) and flying out of it in a few weeks. I need to transfer from Lufthansa to S7 coming from Germany and flying Kyrgyzstan. These are two different tickets, so how do I transfer the luggage. Do I need to enter Russia in order to do this? Do I need a transit visa or can I make the transfer of my luggage from Lufthansa to S7 without enter Russia? Any explanation would be appreciated.
– I recommend you to check the airport info here.
The baggage is processed without your involvement if it was checked through to the final destination at the departure airport.
So, show your second ticket (to Kyrgyzstan) at the registration desk in Frankfurt!
If not, you will pick-up your luggage to go through customs control at Domodedovo.
As for visa, you do not need a transit visa since you will be arriving and leaving again within several hours and not going to leave the airport transit area.
