So, you are going to relax on the sea, without leaving far abroad. You are lucky if you live near the coast and get there is no big deal. But what should we do, say, to the inhabitants of Siberia or the Muscovites? The road often sets the mood for the whole trip, so it is important that it be comfortable and, if possible, budget. How to get to the sea, plan the route, which transport is better to use? We will try to answer these questions.
How to get to the Black Sea
To get to the Black Sea, you must first select the type of transport for the trip.
It is most convenient to fly by plane, and, besides, it will save you time on the way. If your city does not have direct flights to a selected southern city (Sochi, Novorossiysk, Gelendzhik, etc.), then you will need to get first to Moscow (or another large city close to yours). From Moscow airports flies a lot of direct flights to the south. The flight will take you 2 hours and 40 minutes.
Bus routes also go south. But traveling by bus is pretty uncomfortable.Even if the transport with all the comforts, to spend several hours, or even days, in a sitting position is a dubious pleasure, especially when you are traveling with a child. But this is also the most budget travel option. Bus timetables can be found at the bus station in your city.
Many travel south by train. So, you can choose the direction of Moscow-Adler or Moscow-Novorossiysk. If comfort is important to you, then choose brand trains. A ticket to them is, of course, more expensive, but the heat and other inconveniences along the way do not threaten you.
Finally, a car. This method is optimal if you own a personal transport, want to enjoy the views while traveling and do not want to spend a lot of money. Drive on the M4 - it will lead you straight to the sea. It is better if there is another driver in the car with you - just in case. The car is convenient and the fact that there is no need to take a taxi or other intermediate transport to get to the place. At the same time, remember: traveling by car is fraught with emergencies, and you need to move carefully, observing traffic rules, and also pass MOT before the trip.
