Arriving in Moscow
Since Moscow has four airports, not all flights from Nice land in the same place. In fact, it all depends on which airline you fly with.
Travelling with Aeroflot? You will land at Sheremetyevo International Airport. This airport is around 30 kilometres from the city centre, which can be reached easily by:
- train: direct from the airport, the Aeroexpress takes 35 minutes to get to the heart of the city, arriving near a metro station;
- taxi: make sure you use one of the two official companies (Yandex Taxi or Svo-Taxi) by booking your journey at the taxi desk in your terminal. The journey time ranges from 45 minutes to double that at rush hour.
Travelling with S7 Airlines? You will land at Moscow Domodedovo Airport, 45 kilometres from Red Square. To get to the city, you have the following options:
- train: direct from the airport, the Aeroexpress takes 45 minutes to get to the heart of the city, arriving near a metro station;
- a taxi: make sure you use the official company (Gett Taxi) by booking your journey at the taxi desk in your terminal. Allow at least 1h30 for the trip.
Travelling with Ural Airlines? You will land at Zhukovsky International Airport, the city’s newest airport. It is located around 40 kilometres from the centre of Moscow. To get to the centre, take:
- the bus and the metro: bus 441 takes you to Kotelniki metro station. From here, you can travel to the city centre. The total journey time is around two hours;
- the train: first take a shuttle bus to Otdyh station, then get the Sputnik express train to Kazansky station in the north-east of the city, where you can get the metro;

What to do in
The Cold War is just a distant memory, but there’s no denying that the capital of Russia still has a unique aura that sets it apart from all other major European cities. This immense city fascinates us because of its history and the place it occupies (rightly or wrongly) in our imaginations today. But behind the myth, the attentive visitor will discover a different truth: that of modern-day Moscow, where everyday life, from its simplest customs and pleasures to its occasional harshness, never ceases to amaze. It also never fails to charm!

The city is vibrant all year round! Still, you might want the best possible conditions for your holiday in the Russian capital. In this case, opt for May or June. May offers spectacular patriotic celebrations: Labour Day on 1 May and Victory Day on 9 May (celebrating victory against the Nazis). There are no parades in June, but it’s a perfect time for long family walks in Kolomenskoye Park or for relaxation and fun in Gorky Park. Early Autumn is also a great time to visit. The sky and nature are spectacular, their magnificent and unusual colours creating the ideal backdrop for the city.
