Tyumen

Getting around

Tyumen's Roshchino Airport (496 450; roschino.tyumen4u.com/, in Russian) is 30km west of the centre. Take marshrutka 35 (R18 plus R8 per bag, 40 minutes) from outside Transagenststvo which leaves within 20 minutes of the first passenger getting aboard (last 8.40pm).

From the train station bus 25 serves Hotel Vostok and passes near the bus station - hop off at the Neptun/Stroitel stop then walk a block east, crossing the big clover-leaf junction of uls Permyakova and Respubliki. Metered taxis between bus and train stations cost R70, though freelancers ask R150.

Bus 13 from the train station loops around to the Hotel Neftyanik; switch to frequent buses 30 or 14 in front of the Prezident Hotel for Trinity Monastery. These follow ul Respubliki westbound but return along ul Lenina.
