How to get to Yaroslavsky Railway Station


Yaroslavl's Tunoshna Airport is located outside of the city, so you will need to take Bus 183A or taxi to the city. We strongly recommend that you don't accept offers from taxi drivers in the arrival hall or outside the airport - these taxis can be unreasonably expensive. Flights to Yaroslavl depart from Domodedovo Airport in Moscow and from Pulkovo Airport in Saint Petersburg, as can be seen here and here.

The flight from Moscow is about one hour.


You can also take a bus from Moscow. Buses depart from the Central Bus Station of Moscow (Schelkovskoye Shosse, 75/2) and arrive at the Yaroslavl Bus Station. The trip lasts between 5 and 6 hours.
