Despite the fact that Stavropol is the regional center, it is located away from the major transport arteries of Russia. It does not have an airport, and from the railway station you can get directly to only two large cities - Moscow and Adler.
It is necessary
- - train schedule of the Paveletsky railway station in Moscow;
- - train schedule of the Moscow railway station in St. Petersburg;
- - the schedule of suburban trains at the station "Kavkazskaya";
- - flight schedule of the airport "Mineralnye Vody".
If you are traveling from Moscow or via Moscow, you must first get to the Paveletsky train station. It is located near the Paveletskaya metro station, on the circular line. You can take a direct train to the railway station of Stavropol without any changes.
By rail you can get to the regional center and with a transfer. Most of the trains going to the North Caucasus follow the Kavkazskaya station (the city of Kropotkin, Krasnodar Territory). This is a large railway junction, and trains of the southern direction come here from all over the country - from Moscow, Petersburg, Novokuznetsk, Krasnoyarsk, Rostov, Novosibirsk, etc. There is even a train from Minsk.
If you are going to Stavropol from any of these cities, you need to take trains going to Kislovodsk, Vladikavkaz, Nalchik, Grozny, Armavir, Derbent, Makhachkala. Leaving the station "Kavkazskaya", you can leave from the same station by a commuter train to Stavropol. Buses also go from the same station to the neighboring regional center. You can get there a little faster by road.
By the way, it is not always necessary to change trains to get to Stavropol via Kavkazskaya. In the summer, in large cities, trains are often formed in such a way that several cars can be uncoupled and attached to another train. Stavropol carriages are usually re-hooked in the "Caucasian".
Southbound trains also go through the Nevinnomysskaya station. This is the Stavropol Territory. The list of trains is the same as for "Kavkazskaya". The best way to get from Nevinka to the regional center is by bus.
The nearest airport to Stavropol is in Mineralnye Vody. A lot of planes arrive here, since there are popular resorts nearby - Kislovodsk, Pyatigorsk, Zheleznovodsk, Essentuki, which also belong to the Stavropol Territory. Minvody can be reached by direct flight from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Voronezh, Belgorod, Kazan. There are also international flights from Yerevan, Tbilisi, Baku, Thessaloniki. You can get from the airport to Stavropol by bus or taxi.
A direct bus flight to Stavropol can be reached from Moscow. Buses depart from the Domodedovskaya metro station several times a day. In addition, transit flights go through Stavropol - for example, from Pyatigorsk to Odessa.
