Moscow is one of the most fascinating capitals in the world: halfway between Europe and Asia and rich in history and culture, it is one of the most popular destinations for travellers.

The fixed-price taxi service is the best solution for all travellers who want to start immediately on the right foot. With this service, you can enjoy many advantages, from a fixed fare at the time you make your reservation by paying online, thus avoiding foreign exchange, to a fast and comfortable transport with professional drivers who will take you directly to your accommodation or chosen destination, without worrying about traffic, traffic signs or language misunderstandings.
Moscow will surprise you from the moment you arrive and there are countless attractions to visit, so it will be very important to save precious time. The charm of this city lies above all in the continuous changes left by history: it is possible to relive the atmosphere of Tsarist or Soviet times by walking through its streets. Like many other European capitals, even this city is characterised by vivacity and cultural impetus and is also the nation's most important centre from a cultural, economic and political point of view, because it is precisely here that the government is based and it is here that most economic agreements are born. Despite the often harsh climate during the winter months, it may be particularly fascinating to visit the city under the snow. But if you also fear the cold in Moscow, then summer can be the perfect season to fly to Moscow; in any case, consider the importance of transfers when planning your trip: don't waste valuable time with long waits for taxis at the airport or numerous public transport stops!
What to see in Moscow
Of all the attractions in the capital, these are really the most unmissable:
- Kremlin: is the largest and at the same time most important fortified citadel in Russia, home to the palace that was once the residence of the Tsars;
- Red Square: will surprise you with its beauty and its bright colours. This famous church has also represented the highest point of the city until the construction of the Great Bell Tower;
- Saint Basil's Cathedral: one of the most famous churches in the world, famous for its spectacular architecture.;
- Kitaj-gorod: It is one of the most famous neighbourhoods of Moscow, as it is a historic shopping district surrounded by very distinctive medieval walls .
Born originally for military purposes, Vnukovo Airport (VKO) was later transformed into a passenger port, where more than 20 million people pass each year. It takes its name from the city of the same name in which it is located, about 30 km from Moscow. Its intended use is mainly for international flights and has three terminals, as well as a range of services within the airport, such as shops, bars, restaurants, supermarkets, pharmacies and duty-free shops.

Distances from Moscow airport to points of interest
Like other passenger airports in the Russian capital, Vnukovo is not really located in the Moscow city area, but in the nearby city of the same name, at a distance of about 30 km. Therefore, arriving in the centre requires a travel time that cannot be taken into account when planning your trip, as it can change depending on many factors, such as traffic conditions, the season, the day of the week. The time needed to reach the city by car, be it a rental car or a taxi, can vary a lot! Here are some examples of distance of attractions and travel time:
- Vnukovo - Kremlin: 30 km - journey time approximately 50 minutes;
- Vnukovo - Saint Basil's: 30 km - journey time approximately 50 minutes;
- Vnukovo - Bolshoi: 30 km - journey time approximately 1 hour;
Transport in Moscow
To get to Moscow from Vnukovo airport you can choose the Vnukovo-Kievskaya line of the Moscow Aeroexpress high-speed train, which will take you to Kievsky station in about 40 minutes. If you prefer to travel by bus, you can opt for the "Central Street" line to get to Rumyantsevo station, where you can take the subway, which will finally allow you to get to the city centre.
If, on the other hand, you want a direct journey without stopovers or changes of means, our advice is to opt for a taxi service. At the exit of the airport, in specific dedicated areas, you will find Moscow public taxis. The availability of this service is limited according to the time interval and the current flow of passengers. On the other hand, by choosing a private taxi service in Vnukovo, you will have the certainty of not having to wait a second for your driver, since he will already be waiting for you at the airport at the time requested for the reservation. In addition, this service, unlike normal public taxis, will have a fixed cost since the transfer fare is calculated based on the distance and not the meter.
Once in the city, we recommend that you travel by public transport: Cyrillic signs, city traffic and poor road maintenance are the reasons why it is best not to use your own car. The very cheap price of the public transport ticket, combined with a highly efficient underground network, will allow you to enjoy the city to the fullest without the hassles of travelling. Moscow's metro network is particularly extensive and reaches extended points: there are 12 active lines with almost 200 stations, and it is possible to reach all points of interest in the city. Most stations are also an attraction not to be missed: their architecture makes them the most famous in the world and a great view for the eyes while waiting for your train. Don't be discouraged by the difficulty of instructions in an unknown language and with characters different from ours, because using the Moscow metro is very simple: in all stations there are maps that facilitate the calculation of your movements and line changes. Most stations are open from morning until one o'clock in the morning; there are different types of travel tickets available (single, two routes, 20, 40 and 60 routes) or you can buy the Troika Card that allows unlimited travel on all modes of transport.
In the city there are also buses, trams and trolleybuses that we recommend you not to use, as they involve very long travel times, are obsolete and inefficient and reach mostly very peripheral areas and lack places of interest for tourists.
For more information on transport, we recommend consulting the official website Public transport in Moscow.
