Dmitrov is a town in Moscow Oblast, located 65 kilometers to the north of Moscow. It is located on the Yakhroma River and the Moscow Canal, which connects the Russian capital with the Volga River.
Dmitrov is a railroad junction of the Moscow Savyolovsky branch and the Dmitrov–Alexandrov branch. The railroad provides an efficient service to Moscow.
Stary Dmitrov is just ten minutes walk from the station.
You’d better get to Dmitrov by electric train (electrichka) from the Savelovsky Vokzal (about an hour in a way).
AROUND: more than easy - by feet, Dmitrov is small and all interesting things are around the center
- you can go by car (as I did :))), very quick, if there is no traffic jams
- by TRAIN - take elektrichka from Savelovsky Railway Station in Moscow (metro stop Savelovskaya) to Dmitrov, should take about 1,5 -2 hrs max.
Dmitrov lies exactly (well, almost exactly) in the middle of the railway that links Moscow, the capital, with Dubna, my home town. So the easiest option is to take the train.
Besides stops made by our Moscow-Dubna
Express train you can also take a simple commuter train.
This will come out much cheaper and there are more connections, though it has its drawbacks. The main one is the cronic dirt and unpleasant smells that are the malaise of almost all our commuter trains. Then, there
is no comfort to speak of whatsoever. And, if that was not enough, there will be lots of people with huge bags getting on and off these trains at every station. Got the picture??
Use the Express train, that's my piece of advice! 1.5 USD for 2nd and 2 USD for 1st class.
