Business trip to Moscow: how much does accommodation cost, how to choose a hotel and where to go

The capital of Russia is considered a city of events, so employees not only think about what to take on a business trip to Moscow, but also plan a trip around the city. 

However, preparing for both a business trip and a mini-tour requires a lot of energy and time. To save your energy, we have prepared a guide in which we will tell you where to hold a business meeting, how much travel and food cost, what to see in the city and much more. Let’s get started!

Moscow time zone

To ensure that your trip to Moscow on a business trip goes without any incidents, take into account the time difference with all branches and partners of the company. The time zone used in Moscow is UTC+3.

How to get to the center of Moscow

If you are sent on a business trip to Moscow by plane, then you can get to the city center in one of the following ways:

From Sheremetyevo Airport

  • By taxi or car for 40-45 minutes;
  • By public transport (bus or minibus) for 55 -60 minutes.

From Domodedovo Airport

  • By taxi or car for 55-60 minutes;
  • By public transport (bus or minibus) for 1 hour 40-45 minutes.

From Vnukovo airport

  • By taxi or car for 40-45 minutes;
  • By public transport (minibus taxi) for 20-30 minutes to the metro station South-West.

If you managed to come to Moscow on a business trip by train, then getting to the center will be even faster: most of the capital’s stations are located in the city center, within walking distance from metro stations.

For example, from Kazansky, Leningradsky, Kursky railway stations you can get there

  • By taxi or car in 15-20 minutes; 
  • By public transport in 20-25 minutes.

Finally, you can get to Moscow by bus. This option is budget-friendly, but not always convenient. Moscow has bus connections with more than 250 cities, including St. Petersburg, Vladimir, Yaroslavl and other Russian cities.
