How to get to hotel Universitetskaya and Computing Center RAS

From airport Sheremetyevo-2 (SVO)

General recommendations: train is most reliable transportation, especially for departure. The timetable of express train and shuttle bus is available at arrivals. The main road from Sheremetyevo to Moscow, Leningradskoe shosse, is prone to serious traffic jams. In the morning the direction to Moscow is jammed, in the evening the opposite direction, but you can encounter traffic jam at any moment. Thus you can ride to metro station "Rechnoy vokzal" couple of hours instead of 15 minutes.

From airport Domodedovo

The best way is to use express train directly from Domodedovo to metro station Paveletskaya.
