    How to get Crimea by air

    by Kuznetsov_Sergey Updated Feb 22, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is possible to reach the Crimea by three ways. The first - and the most plain way - by air. The main airport of the Crimea is in the capital of an autonomy - Simferopol.

    There are home airlines at the airport:
    "Krym" and representatives offices of such airlines as:
    Uzbekistan Airways, "Aeroflot", "Pulkovo", "Ukraine International Airlines", "Sibir", "Turkish Airlines", "ArmAvia", "Sebastopol Avia", "Donbass", "El Al", "ARP 410", "Tavriya".
    There are flights from "Simferopol" to:
    Kyiv, Frankfurt-on-Maine, Tel-Aviv, Istanbul, Moscow, Saint-Petersburg, Minsk, Novosibirsk, Ekaterinburg, Ufa, Krasnoyarsk, Tashkent, Erevan, Habarovsk, Kazan, Murmansk, Vilnus, Lvov, and other cities.

    International Airport Simferopol

    The price of two-way tickets to Simferopol from Moscow of regular flight "Aeroflot” is 9270 rubles ($370).

    I flied to Simferopol three times in 1972, 1973 and 1980. Then price of tickets was approximately equal to my student's grant. Therefore it was possible on a summer vacation make a flight and to have a rest in Crimea. Now the ticket's price aboard the plane exceeds a salary of a professor.

    That's why we considered this way too expensive for us and chose another way to get the Crimea.

    How to get the Crimea by train

    by Kuznetsov_Sergey Updated Feb 19, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Finally the third way to reach the Crimea from Moscow is to take advantage of train. We have chosen this way for the following reasons. The price of the two-way ticket Moscow-Simferopol in a compartment of high comfort is 5200 roubles (less then $200). A train completes one way during 23 hours. We went to the Crimea in a company of 5 persons and occupied the whole compartment for 4 persons. It was cheerful also we did not notice, how 23 hours had passed.

    Last time I came to the Crimea (Evpatoria) by train in 1961 when was still a boy. We had been traveling from Murmansk during 4 days. I hardly remember this travel. Once again I crossed the Crimea by train in 1965 on a transit way to Novorossisk in the Caucasus. Therefore our trip by train this year reminded my childhood. From our point of view the trip by train from Moscow to the Crimea is the most effective by criterion of time-price.

    How to get the Crimea by car

    by Kuznetsov_Sergey Written Feb 19, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The second way to reach the Crimea is to use a car. My parents took an advantage of this way (and I together with them) in 1967. The distance between Moscow and Simferopol is about 1200 kilometers. 40 years ago we overcame this distance during three days on our "Moskvich-408".

    This time if there is a good road it could be possibly made during one day. However the present highway "Moscow-Simferopol" have to wish much of the best. Obviously it is necessary to spent two or one and a half day to reach the Crimea by car. Besides that the prospect of passage of the state border of Russia and Ukraine by car does not add positive emotions (who tried it - knows). Therefore we refused of the idea to reach the Crimea by car.

    1200 km by car - unpleasant perspective!

  • From Symferopol to Alushta and Yalta

    Symferopol is the main place from which you can go to other places on Krym. The cheapest way of travelling is a train. Marshrutki (mini-buses) can be even 5-6 times expensive than public transport.

    There is trolley-bus line from Symferopol to Yalta (price app. 2 USD) and Alushta (app.1,2 USD).

  • To Krym by a train

    by Raffmo Written Sep 26, 2005

    I went from Warsaw to Mazyr in Belarus and then to Symferopol on Krym. You can take this train from Brest (BY) as well, however the train is every 2 days during the holidays season. The price for 1 person from Mazyr to Symferopol is app. 50.000 Belarussian roubles (app. 23 USD) for plackartnyj.

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    TRAINS ARE VERY CONVENIENT FROM THE CAPITAL, SIMFEROPOL TO BAKHTCHISSARAI AND THEN TO SEBASTOPOL.
    THEN TAKE BUS OR MARCHROUKI TO REACH YALTA OR SUDAK
