One of the recent questions from one of the travelers was: “How to get from the airport to Kaliningrad?“.
First of all there is a shuttle bus that goes every 40 minutes. Check the timetable from KGD Airport below. The ticket price is 80 RUB, aprox. 1.3 EURO or so. Sounds perfect, isn’t it?
You can check the schedule for both directions at Khrabrovo Airport Official Site.
Second option is a taxi ride. Some taxi apps shows me the prices starting from 500 Rub or so to the city center. Also there are special information desks with taxi-agents that could help you to get the ride to the destination you require.
And annoying taxi drivers that are looking for customers on their own – least recommended but sill an option too. 🙂
Also you will find several Car Rental companies inside the Khrabrovo Airport Building.
