Hotel Shuttles

See also Airport Hotels above.


Travel as the locals do! If your load is light, you can travel at a fraction of the price of a taxi by taking a “marshrutka” (shared-ride minibus). Marshrutka lines 4 or 20 are your best bet for getting to or from the city center, with a one-way journey time of approximately 30 minutes. Lines 3, 5, and 14 also travel between the airport and the city center but take much longer.


Taxis are readily available for hire in the ground transportation area. There are no meters, so negotiate a fare with the driver before starting your journey. A one-way trip between the airport and the city center takes 15 – 20 minutes.
