Travelling to/from Nizhny Novgorod
Nizhny Novgorod is situated 400 km north-east of Moscow on the banks of two great Russian rivers: the Volga and the Oka. One can get to Nizhny Novgorod either by direct/connecting flight or through Moscow using Russian railways.
There are three Russian companies working in this direction with about 6 flights per day. Most of them are available for connection with international flights landing in Moscow.
Flights are available from Domodedovo airport DME (S7 airlines http://www.s7.ru/, 3-4 flights per week) and Sheremetevo airport SVO (Aeroflot http://www.aeroflot.ru, up to 6 flights per day).
There are more than 10 trains from Moscow to Nizhny Novgorod and back. They depart from different railway stations in Moscow and arrive at one station in Nizhny Novgorod.
The best way to get to railway stations is to take “aeroexpress” transit to the nearest railway station connected to subway station: Paveletskaya for transit from Domodedovo (DME) and Belorusskaya for transit from Sheremetyevo (SVO). Then using the brown subway (the 5-th, cycled) branch you will get to the needed railway station.
“Aeroexpress” transit costs 450 rubles, the map of Moscow subway (metro) can be found at http://engl.mosmetro.ru/pages/page_0.php?id_page=4.
Russian railways provide ground transportation from Moscow and St. Petersburg to Nizhny Novgorod.
You can book online tickets 45 days before the trip at http://pass.rzd.ru/main-pass/public/en
“MOSKVA KAZ” in the time table means Kazansky station (vokzal) in Moscow. The station is located at the metro station Komsomolskaya.
“MOSKVA YAR” means Yaroslavsky station (metro station Komsomolskaya).
“MOSKVA KUR” means Kursky station (metro station Kurskaya).
The travel time from the airport to the railway station is from 50 to 90 minutes, depending on your fortune and navigation skills.
