Best things to do and see in Russia

How long does it take to fly to Russia?

Flights to Russia from Australia vary in journey time depending on where you are departing from. For example, if you fly from the east or west of the country, you can expect the flight time to vary significantly. Russia flights from Sydney on the east coast are a good way to get cheap flights, with the journey time being about 21h and 50min to Moscow and around 25h to Saint Petersburg. If your departure city is Perth on the west coast of Australia, then your flight times are approximately 18h to Moscow and about 21h and 20min to Saint Petersburg. Those that take off from Melbourne will find that the plane is in the air for about 20h and 55min before landing in Moscow and about 24h 15min to Saint Petersburg. No matter which route you decide to take, you will find it easy to get a well-priced airfare on momondo.

Can you get direct flights to Russia from Australia?

Unfortunately, there are no non-stop routes between Australia and Russia. But there are plenty of tickets for routes with one transfer, so you will arrive at your destination in no time at all. For instance, if you fly from Sydney Airport (SYD), Perth Airport (PER) or Melbourne Airport (MEL) to Saint Petersburg Airport (LED), you will make one stop along the journey. This would most likely be at Dubai International Airport (DXB). If you fly from SYD, PER or MEL to Moscow Domodedovo Airport (DME), then you would also be required to transfer once along the journey. Again, this is normally at the same airport, which is most commonly at Hamad International Airport (DOH) in Doha.

What is the best way to travel around Russia?

Like Australia, Russia is a vast country, so there are many ways to travel. Some of the main forms of transport in the country are train, bus and plane. If you were to travel from Saint Petersburg to Moscow, for example, there are several different methods of transport you could take. One of the quickest ways is to fly between these two cities. If you choose this option, you will find that the flight time tends to be about 1h and 35min. You could also get a range of trains, including the 751A, which completes the journey in approximately 3h and 30min. If you aren't in a rush, you could also opt for the Ecolines bus, which takes around 10h in total. Alternatively, if you want more flexibility with your onward journey, you could look to drive between the two cities, which takes about 7h and 20min. If you want to travel from Moscow to Novosibirsk, then flying is probably your best option. A direct flight between these two cities tends to have a total journey time of about 3h and 50min. An alternative route is to take the famous Russian trains, which is an adventure in itself. The travel time between Moscow and Novosibirsk takes about two days and 4h. Driving this distance would most likely take a similar time at around 45h behind the wheel.

Does an Australian citizen need a passport or visa to fly to Russia?

Australian citizens will need to make sure that they have a visa before they arrive in Russia. This can be obtained at the Russian embassy or the Russian consulate before you fly. It can take a bit of time to approve, so ensure you don’t do this too close to your departure date. Otherwise, you may not be able to travel. You also need to make sure that you have a passport that is valid for at least six months after your arrival date.
