How to Get to Ryazan?


By railways

The best way to get to Ryazan is by railways. There are many trains, travelling from the «Kazansky» station of Moscow, including a special «express» train, named after the great Russian poet Sergey Esenin. It travels 3 to 4 times a day, there and back. You can buy the tickets in the station cashiers (passport is required).

There are two most important railways going through Ryazan. They are: a «historical» Trans-Siberian railway (it goes from Moscow through Kolomna to Ryazan, continues to Mordovia, Samara Region, Ufa, Chelyabinsk, Kurgan until it crosses the Trans-Siberian in the Omsk Region). Also there are two main lines of the Caucasian railways (through Pavelets and Ryazhsk).
