Moscow Trains

Moscow has nine train stations, all of which are situated next to metro stations. This makes getting to your hotel or connecting train very simple. (Click to see a Moscow Metro map).
Even if you have a lot of luggage and wish to take a taxi to your hotel, the price will be significantly less expensive than the airport since most train stations are in relative proximity to the city center.
