Moscow is the sixth most populous city in Europe with a population of over 11.5 million, and it is served by five airports: the Sheremetyevo International Airport, Bykovo Airport, Vnukovo International Airport, Ostafevo International Airport and Domodedovo International Airport. The airport used for most international flights from Moscow is the Domodedovo International Airport, located 26 miles from the city center, with the rest primarily handling domestic flights to other Russian destinations and flights to former Soviet states. International carriers operating from Domodedovo include Aeroflot, Air China, Korean Air, British Airways and Delta Airlines. Seats on many of the flights can be reserved online through Orbitz.com.
Short-term parking is available near the passenger terminal starting at $1.50 per hour. Long-term parking can be found at the long-term car park for around $18 a day.
Domodedovo Airport is linked to Moscow by a speedway, allowing quick transportation from the city to the airport by car, taxi or bus. The airport also operates the Aeroexpress railway service. The Aeroexpress train takes between 20 and 25 minutes to make the trip from Moscow to the airport at a cost of about $10. The express bus takes about 30 minutes but is less expensive at $3.00. Taxis can be booked anywhere in the city, with costs varying according to starting location.
A quick meal before departing from Moscow can be eaten at the low-cost fast food restaurants located within the airport. Kroshka-Kartoshka specializes in foil-wrapped baked potatoes with tasty fillings, while Sbarro offers dishes such as lasagna, calzone and stromboli. Indian dishes are available at the Paprika restaurant and Uzbek cuisine at Uzbechka. Several other restaurants are available as well, offering travelers a hearty meal before catching their flights from Moscow.
Krakow features some of the most breathtaking historical views and modern business travel amenities available in Poland, and Orbitz.com can help you book cheap flights to Krakow. Flights to the city arrive at the John Paul II International Airport found at Medweckiego 1 32-083 in Balice, Poland. The airport is approximately 11 kilometers, or 7 miles, from the city's center. The airport provides service to major locations throughout Europe and northern Asia on airlines including Ryanair, Lufthansa and Lot.
Taxi service to the city center costs approximately $15 and takes about 15 minutes. Trains operate to and from the airport between the hours of 5:34 a.m. and 10:57 p.m. One-way ticket costs begin at approximately $6, and round-trip tickets are available at prices around $8.75 per person. Train travel takes approximately 20 minutes each way. Buses provide the least expensive option, but may take twice as long as train or taxi travel. Bus ticket costs begin at $1 per person.
Temperature in the city ranges from 5 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter to summer highs of 86 degrees. The local climate is temperate, with regular rains year-round and snow during the winter months. Winter travelers should prepare for cold weather and bring heavy jackets or snow gear, while visitors in the summer should dress lightly. Regular rain during the spring and fall months makes ponchos and umbrellas a wise choice for travelers.
Most attractions found throughout the city reflect on the history of this part of Poland. The beautiful winter months showcase the city's historic buildings in a period with less tourist activity than the late spring to early fall. The Royal Way, from Florian's Gate to the Wawel Castle, offers some of the most breathtaking views of gothic and earlier architecture. The city's Old Town features traditional craftsmen who create unique souvenirs not found elsewhere. Let Orbitz.com help you book cheap flights to Krakow, as well as hotels near points of interest.
