Hay muchos trenes entre San Petersburgo y Moscu , nosotros decidimos viajar por la noche en un un coche cama . Salimos hacia las 11 de la noche y llegamos a la estación de Leningrado de Moscú hacia las siete de la mañana , después de un viaje muy bueno en una cabina de cuatro camas que compartimos con una pareja bastante agradable
La estación de Metro Konsomol'skaya está justo al lado y desde aquí ya se puede acceder fácilmente en Metro a cualquier zona de Moscú
There are many trains between St. Petersburg and Moscow and we decided to travel by night in a sleeper . We left about 11 pm and arrived at Leningrad Station in Moscow at about seven in the morning, after a very good trip in a four-bed cabin shared with a couple pretty nice and polite
Konsomol'skaya Metro station is right next door and from here is easily accessible by metro to anywhere in Moscow
There are several railroad stations on Moscow, some are as the metro, a work of art. If U´re planning to go near moscow, around 200km U can take the electrical trains, "electrichki". They aren´t so conmfortable but are cheap and take U almost anywhere in a radius of 200km from Moscow. Inside the trains there are locals selling all kind of stuff, food, sweets and souvenirs. Take care of your money and don´t show it all. The far U´re from Moscow, the more thieves U´ll find.
The fastest, easiest and cheapest way to get airport Sheremetyevo from Moscow (and vice versa) is to take a train “Aeroexpess” from Savelovsky vokzal (station). Trip is without stops and takes not more than 30 minutes. Train station in Sheremetyevo is located just in front of the terminal 2, and will take 5-7 minutes to walk to the terminal.
Unfortunately tickets can’t be bought in advance; you can buy them only in a day of departure. Ticket offices are located at both stations (Savelovskaya and in Sheremetyevo) and works since 7:30 till 21:30.
Actual schedule, rates and other useful info can be gotten here http://www.aeroexpress.ru/en/schedule/sheremetievo/
From any place in Moscow you can take metro to get Savelovsky vokzal: grey line, metro station Savelovskaya
Decent station during the daytime; the waiting area is very large on the second floor; you have to go up an escalader. A small restaurant is upstairs too, it is at the very end of the large waiting room. If you want to explore some of Moscow before your train departs, there is a locker storage area downstairs (basement area) in the building where you purchase tickets. The only bathroom I found was downstairs going to the trains; it was .15 cents to use. If you are hungry or thirsty, there are plenty of places to get something to eat or drink. If you want to eat something more familiar, there is Subway sandwich place when you exit the building. A very big benefit is that the Aeroexpress has a stop at the station!
Aero express – just opened 2 weeks before we arrived. Awesome station, this saved us a ton of money by not having to use a taxi. The train station is directly in front of SVO2 when you exit the building. If you have time, spend more time in the Aero express station then SVO2, nice & clean with a Starbucks, shops, Irish bar, above average bathrooms, etc….. Currently it is not finalized, so there are some 'temp walkways', but when it is up and running, this will be a huge asset to Moscow's transit system. We had weekend rates and it was $6.66 (ea.) to get to the Belarussky Train Station; otherwise, it would have been $100 by taxi.
There are eight train stations in Moscow and you have to be sure to pick the right one - depending on where/which direction you want to go:
Belarus Train Station:
Long-distance trains to the Western and South-Western directions of Russia and abroad
Kazan Train Station:
Long-distance trains to the South, East, South-East of Russia, Kazakhstan and Middle Asia
Kiev Train Station:
Long distance trains to the West and South-West of Russia and abroad
Kursk Train Station:
Long-distance trains to the South-West and South of Russia and the former Soviet Union.
Leningrad Train Station:
Long distance trains to the North-West of Russia and abroad.
Pavelets Train Station
Riga Train Station
Yaroslavl Train Station:
Yaroslavl Station is the terminus for trains to and from northern European Russia, Siberia, Mongolia and China.
Yaroslavl Train Station was built just after the turn of the century in Style Moderne, with elements of Tartar architecture bizarrely combined. This was the trainstation that we left from both times on the Transsiberian Railway.
I took a 1st Class ticket (on a Russian train) on the Trans Siberian Railway. It took me four and a bit days to reach Moscow and it was one of the most facinating experiences of my life. I shared a 2 berth room with another foreign woman traveller whom I had never met before. It was really pot-luck as to who you end up with. She moved from a 4 berth cabin because her bunk had been piled up with goods belonging to the Mongolian Traders. Having the traders on board the train was quite exciting. They spent the time between UB and Sukhbaatar (the Mongolian border) swapping goods so as to avoid customs duty. After Sukhbaatar and Naushiky the Russian border) procedures were completed they spent the rest of the night retrieving their goods! It was interesting watching the poor Siberian Russians buying the bad quality Chinese manufactured goods that the Mongolian traders were selling during the time the trains were stopped at the station. There were no shower or bath facilities on the train and the toilets were pretty gross. I managed to have a cold water wash with a cup and flannel.
I spent most of the time sleeping, reading and eating. I had stocked up on some basic supplies and the friendly lady babushka from the restaurant car kept us supplied with lovely chicken, bread and piva (beer) for the first half of the journey. Unfortunately towards the end of the trip most of the trains' food supplies were running low so we had to make do with biscuits and chocolate we had bought along. I was so excited when we finally arrived at Yaroslavl Station and I met up with a Russian man who helped me across the street to Kazan Station for my trip to Samara.
if u are a Foreigner and you are going to travel Inter City.........you neeed buy the ticket in the Intourist agency....are in the train stations,,,
Don't go to the regular ticket window.(kacca)
Traveling out of Moscow from Belarussky Station April 4 2010 to Berlin--was planning on WiFi, but no WiFi access on trains nor readily available in Moscow. Plan well ahead of time for itinerary connections, overnight accommodation, etc.. Anticipating dark at 9:20 PM departure, we figured out where to meet the train during daylight when we were storing luggage in the underground vault, but it was bit of mad rush after we returned and found we'd misread the train ticket. Train personnel were helpful as we ran from train to train. The journey fine. Although the end-cars provided boiling hot water and there were mugs and flasks in 1st class, next time I'd pack a few teabags, tin of biscuits, fruit, bread, and potted meat as dining car seemed non-existent, and was a bit wary of home-cooking by vendors at the stations. Russian security with 'no photo' signs were intimidating, and Belarussian security also off-putting. The constant stream of uniformed guards, inspectors, etc. on the train might've made some passengers feel safer, but despite helpfulness of non-German, non-English speaking stewards, it dampened enthusiasm for taking photos. Next time, I'd take a theft-proof cell phone, a good book, and wear long underwear to enjoy a trip of a lifetime!
Aeroexpress Domodedovo to Moscow (Paveletskaya metro station & train station) ~ 320 rubles economy class
metro to Komsomolskaya & Leningrad train station ~ 28 rubles, route planner here
Or you may take a plane :)
Yoy should use Aeroexpress (name of train) because it's faster and cheapper than taxi. It will take about 40 min
Belorusskiy station and station of undeground "Belorusskay" are quite near!
Trains go each 30 min!
Working time Aeroexpress is 5.00 - 0.30.(Sheremetievo- Belorusskiy station)
Price for a ride on the Domodedovo airport express train is now 250 Rubels (August 2009). Only rubles accepted at the ticket booths - many ticket booths and well organized so no problem to get the tickets. The train has comfortable chairs, drives about 45 minutes and drives every 30 minutes to Pavaletskaya station (south east on circle line).
Domodedovo by the way means "house of grandfather" (domo=house, de= of - it is pronounced dje, dovo= grandfather). Before I knew this, I never could remember this strange assembly of d's, e's and o's.
Domodedovo is a very nice super-modern airport with the best Lufthansa business lounge I know.
The easiest route to Moscow from Domodedovo Airport is by express train in just 40 minutes to Paveletsky Terminus.
Opposite the terminus is Paveletsky Metro easily reachable by an underpass (without steps for those with luggage on wheels).
Info now taken from Lonely Planet website
Moscow has rail links to most parts of Russia, most former Soviet states, numerous countries in Eastern and Western Europe, and China and Mongolia. Moscow has nine main train stations, all with metro stations on the spot.
The Transmongolian train to Beijing departs from Yaroslavski Station (of of the 3 stations in Moscow)
You have to wade through an enormous crowd of people to get on the train.
It seems that half Mongolia must be on it
