Travel Tips for Transportation in Russia

Yakhroma, Central Russia, Russia
Yakhroma is where to go to ski. From the station, you can either get a bus (not very regular) to the Sorochany slopes, or alternatively pick up and car and be driven to one of the many other areas. To get to Yakhroma, take a train from Savlolovsky Station in the direction of Dimitrov (Dimitrov is the stop after Yakhroma). The train journey should take 1hr30m or so and in early 2008 cost about 80rubles each way.

Moscow, Central Russia, Russia
Metro is the best way to travel in Moscow. They have the tallest escalators I've seen. You can buy multiple tickets that need to be scanned (they have a transponder), quite high tech. Enjoy the decor on the stations.

Kizhinga, Siberia, Russia
Kizhinga is the site of a very important Buddhist temple. Like every other temple in Siberia, it was completely erased from the map during the repressions of the 1930's. In the 1980's all there was standing was a log cabin. Now they have started to rebuild. The Buryat language has many dialects, but the dialect of Buryat which is spoken in Kizhinga is the basis of the official modern language. It is possible to get there by bus from Ulan-Ude.

Khabarovsk, Far Eastern Russia, Russia
Khabarovsk is on the Amur River, which is the border between China and Russia. Not far from Khabarovsk is Birobaijan, the Jewish Autonomous Region. Khabarovsk has a major airport, which has flights to places like Alaska and North Korea. Khabarovsk is a medium-sized city, with a growing commerce sector. The region surrounding Khabarovsk has tigers, wild grapes and even citrus! There are at least 20 indigenous groups which populated the area 100 years ago. I recommend that you travel with a local guide, because things are pretty rough in that region. But you will have a lot of adventures if you travel around Khabarovsk!
