Getting There & Away
Most towns in Western European Russia are well connected to Moscow and St Petersburg by bus and train. Buses are the best way of travelling between towns in the region. The BlahBlah car-pooling app is another option worth looking into, offering cheaper rates and faster, door-to-door service, plus it's a good way to meet locals.
Flights operate between Moscow and Pskov, and Moscow and Voronezh.
International connections include buses from Pskov to Tallinn (Estonia), and train connections to Latvia and Lithuania. Trains run from Smolensk to Minsk (Belarus), Warsaw (Poland), Prague (Czech Republic) and Vienna (Austria).
