How to get to Donetsk
The fastest and most convenient way to get to Donetsk is by plane. Flights "Moscow - Donetsk" take off every day. Transaero liners fly up from Domodedovo Airport, UTair airlines fly from Vnukovo, and Aeroflot aircraft fly from Sheremetyevo. Flight time is 1 hour and 45 minutes.
But it is known that many do not like or are afraid to fly. For such travelers, the most preferred and safest option is a long-distance train. The Moscow-Donetsk and Moscow-Mariupol trains depart from the Kursk Station of the Russian capital. In 2013, these trains appeared luxury cars, and both flights are very popular among passengers. On the way, you will have to spend 20 hours and 10 minutes.
There are also people who are not only afraid of flying on airplanes, but also not very comfortable traveling on trains. Such travelers choose a bus. The main part of the bus "Moscow - Donetsk" departs from the Schelkovskogo bus station.
There is a small bus station at the Kursk station in the Russian capital. From there one bus leaves per day. Travel time is 16 hours.
Well, the most comfortable way to Donetsk is, of course, a car. There are several options for the way to this settlement. You can get to Donetsk through Kursk, Belgorod and Kharkiv on the M2 Crimea highway.
According to the second option, a motorist gets to Donetsk through Russia and Belarus along the M1 and M2 highways, then drives along the E 105 via Chernihiv and Dnepropetrovsk.
