    Getting around

    Public Transport

    The most atmospheric way to explore the Russian capital is on the Moscow Metro (tel: (495) 688 0293;; fares are cheap, trains run to every corner of the city and the marble and chandelier-filled stations are works of art in themselves. Tickets are sold in stations; buy a multi-ride smart card to avoid the queues. Above ground, buses, trams and marshrutka (shared minibuses) zip between the suburbs and the centre, but routes can be confusing; buy tickets from the driver, from metro stations, or from ticket booths at bus stops.


    Taking a taxi in Moscow can be an expensive business, and that’s before you consider Moscow’s notorious traffic jams. It’s best to phone ahead for an official taxi, rather than taking your chances in Moscow’s vast fleet of unofficial taxis; reputable companies include Welcome Taxi (tel: (499) 553 0158) and New Yellow Taxi (tel: (495) 940 8888). Locals generally do not tip.


    Hotels in Moscow


    Bargains are sparse in über-expensive Moscow, but grand hotels are in steady supply. The most prestigious addresses are close to Red Square and the Kremlin, where caviar and champagne breakfasts are de rigueur.

    For cheaper accommodation, head to the suburbs and commute to the centre on the Moscow Metro.
