There are three international airports in Moscow (SVO, DME, VKO):

From the airport 

A fastest and reliable public transportation from Moscow airports to the city is the AEROEXPRESS railway: 
AEROEXPRESS delivers passengers between the airports and major city railway terminals of Moscow:
Vnukovo International Airport – Kievsky Railway Station;
Domodedovo International Airport – Paveletsky Railway Station;
Sheremetyevo International Airport – Belorussky Railway Station. 
Shuttles depart every 30 minutes and take about 25-45 min to the city, depending on destination. Special services are available to passengers travelling with particular airlines. Please inquire with your carrier, and find more information on the Fares & Services section of the AEROEXPRESS website. 

Upon arrival in the city the easy way is to take the Moscow Metro to the station “UNIVERSITET”. The station is located right next to the Moscow State University campus on Sparrow Hills (Vorobyovy Gory). You can either walk to the venue or take a short trip on ground transport (see below). 
Magnetic passes for one or several rides on the metro can be purchased only at entrances of each metro station (50 RUB single ride).
Magnetic passes for ground transport can be purchased either from the driver or at MOSGORTRANS (ĢĪŃĆĪŠŅŠĄĶŃ) stalls located at exits of many metro stations or ground transport stops. Numerous minibus shuttles mirror the routes of busses and trolleybuses and offer quick rides.

By Taxi

You also can take a taxi from the airports. However, you are advised to arrange a driver only at dedicated TAXI counters at the airport. They look like this:


Beware of private drivers who will offer you an unfair price! Legal TAXI will cost about 2000 – 2500 RUB depending on the company. With current traffic, the trip can take from one to two hours.

Monomax Ltd (conference Service Agency) provides transfers from Moscow airports to the hotel and back. Transfer can be booked in your Personal area. Price: 2500 RUB per car (1-3 persons with luggage). You will be met at the arrival zone of the airport by a driver holding a sign with your name.
