Transportation

How to get there
By plane
The closest airports to the city belong to the Moscow Aviation Hub.

By train
From the Belorussky station of Moscow to Zvenigorod there are electric trains (approximately once every 1.5 hours). Travel time - 1 h 20 min - 1 h 30 min. You can also take this train to Begovaya station (Begovaya metro station), Fili (Fili metro station) and Kuntsevo station (Kuntsevskaya metro station). The station Zvenigorod is located a few kilometers from the city. A city bus runs between the station, the city center and the Savvino-Storozhevsky monastery. You can also get from Moscow by train to Golitsyno station (every 30 minutes, 40-50 minutes on the way), and then transfer to the bus to the center of Zvenigorod.

If you are coming from the side of Mozhaisk, then you need to get off at Golitsyno and take a train or bus to Zvenigorod.

Near the Savvino-Storozhevsky monastery there is a platform 190 km of the Okruzhnaya railway. Electric trains run there extremely rarely, several times a day. If you do decide to use this platform, then learn the schedule in advance.
