The easiest way to get from any airport to the Moscow center is to use Aeroexpress (train to Moscow) service. It costs about 350 roubles (about 9 euro). Trains depart every 30 minutes and it gets about 30-40 minutes to reach one of central railway stations. More information about Aeroexpress can be found on its official website (English).

Main transportation system in Moscow is Metro (subway). The entrances to Moscow Metro are labelled with red letter „M”.

Here is the scheme with labels for IUM (conference venue, see below), HSE and Steklov institute. (See also scheme without labels.) You can also use interactive route service by Yandex (in Russian).

The fare in Metro varies from 40 roubles (1 euro) to 20 roubles (0.5 euro) per pass depending on the number of passes on the ticket. We recommend to by a ticket which contain at least 5 passes.

  • The hotel has Wi-fi, but the front desk instructions for accessing them are only in Russian and moreover the instructions only list the password but not the name of the network to use, which is Vavilova. The Wi-fi sometimes works sporadically and if it does not work in a hotel room it could work on a couch in the hallway near the hotel room. Wi-fi is stable when you're sitting on the 13th floor couches (at least on the couch closest to room 1305, which is the only couch I tried) but Wi-fi in the rooms themselves has been spotty. (Adapted from [1].)
  • There is Gagarinsky shopping center (ГАГАРИНСКИЙ) near HSE (at 3, Vavilova street) which has lots of restaurants and shops. For instance, there is T.G.I. Friday's on the ground floor and free Wi-fi in the front atrium. See the route below:
