Located in northwestern Russia, the largest country in the world in terms of area, Arkhangelsk is one of the country’s most important trading ports. Due to its location the climate is cold year-round and barely gets warm during the summer. The city’s residents usually work in trade and education. Among the structures to see in the city, which you should visit during the summer for a more comfortable trip, are the Malye Korely Open-Air Museum, Lomonosov Drama Theater, Kenozersky National Park, and the St. Nicholas Church.
The city has large parks and lush gardens, which are great to explore especially if you visit during the spring or summer, and calm streets perfect for a day of shopping. By participating in photography trips or daily city tours of this vibrant city, surrounded by typical Russian structures, you can take a closer look at the city’s history and local peoples’ lives. Although there are no direct flights from New York or London, you can reach the city through a connection in Moscow or St. Petersburg.
Arkhangelsk is a city known as the capital of Russia's northwestern region. Those who want to see Arkhangelsk can travel to Talagi Airport in the city. The distance between the airport and the city center is approximately 12 kilometers. Even though the public transport service is provided in the city, it is difficult to find a vehicle because they are operated not on a frequent basis. This is why taking a taxi is a more practical option. Car rental service is not offered at the airport.
It is possible to get to the many central districts of the city such as Severdovinsk, Karl Marx Street, Train Station and Sovetskaya by taking bus number 153. The bus departs at 05:55, 12:00, 17:10 and 22:20.
Using the taxis available at the airport, it is possible to travel to the city center in approximately fifteen to twenty minutes. However, airport taxis are almost twice as expensive as city taxis. If you speak Russian, it will be more economical to book a taxi from outside the airport before your flight.Last Updated: July 29, 2017
