How to get there:

Many air carriers offer the transfer from Moscow to Sochi you can choose the airport and the time of flight that is convenient to you. Round trip economy prices start from 5600 rubles (about $200). Flight time is 1 hour 50 minutes, and most of this time is spent over water. If you want a glimpse of Russia, you can take the daily 104 or 102 train from Kazansky railway station and enjoy about 27 hours of Russian routine life. But taking the train wont save you much money separate compartment costs the same as economy air ticket, and other variants are not for those who want a comfortable journey quite an experience.
