Evpatoria is a city of happiness, a children's resort and the mosta large city on the western coast of the Crimean peninsula. This remarkable tourist and historical center of the Republic of Crimea with its long sandy beaches attracts more than one generation of people. Ukrainians, Russians and Byelorussians cross thousands of kilometers every year in order to sunbathe, swim and relax. How to get to Evpatoria from Moscow? This issue is of concern to many tourists. Let's try to answer it.
But first, let's define why we need Evpatoria. The slogan "children's resort" appeared for a reason. The matter is that here the best beaches in Crimea for rest with small children. Under the feet of warm white sand, and not sharp and sometimes dirty pebbles, the entrance to the sea is very pleasant, gentle, the depth is "accumulated" gradually, which makes staying with a child on such a beach absolutely safe. In addition, absolutely clean air (here there are no factories and factories), a mixture of the aroma of herbs with marine phytoncides is a real protection of children's and adult immunity from all diseases for the whole year.
In Evpatoria there are also a lot of places whereyou can go with the children. Many think that the main attractions of the Crimea are near Yalta, but this is not true. There is a wonderful park of miniatures in which mock-ups of all famous places of the peninsula are collected. Popular is the route "Lesser Jerusalem" - a walking tour through the medieval part of the city with visits to religious places: Karaite kenas, teki dervishes, Muslim mosques and Orthodox churches.
Another highlight of Evpatoria is a tram -this is the only city in the Crimea that has this type of transport. Finally, in half an hour from the city is located the city of Saki, known for its curative mud; the largest water park in Crimea; in an hour's drive - the crystal clear waters of Tarkhankut, cave towns, the Bakhchsarai Palace, where Pushkin was, and the capital of the republic.
Another absolute plus of this place is therelatively low cost of recreation. So, here you can stay in a good hotel with a swimming pool and a restaurant near the sea for about the same price as in the resorts of Krasnodar Territory (Anapa, Gelendzhik, Tuapse), while the Southern coast of Crimea from Foros to Sudak can not boast of such democratic prices. The truth and nature in Evpatoria is very different from Yalta: there are no mountains, forests and reserves - only the steppe and the sea.
Do you want to come here soon? Do not hurry. First you need to find out how to get to Evpatoria from Moscow. So, more in detail.
The easiest way to conduct a minimumthe amount of time on the route "Moscow - Evpatoria" is an airplane. True, there is no airport in the Crimean city, but it is in Simferopol, where by bus or car you can get to the place of rest for an hour. This is a relatively inexpensive way of traveling, as many flights are subsidized by the state. In addition, it takes very little time - only two and a half hours from the Russian capital to the Crimean. For a ticket for two people there and back will have to pay from 25 thousand rubles.
If you are afraid of flying, you might think of a train. But there are a lot of troubles. Until 2017, there was a direct train "Moscow - Evpatoria", which walked several days bypassing Ukraine, crossing the ferry through the Kerch Strait. According to tourists, it was, to put it mildly, awful and uncomfortable, because the route was closed until the Crimean bridge was built. Today, since there are no "Moscow-Evpatoria" trains (although there is a railway station in Evpatoria), you can take the train to Anapa, and from there you can get to Evpatoria by bus. The journey time by train is 1 day and 15 hours. The bus "Anapa - Evpatoria" without taking into account the ferry will take about 7 hours more. Keep in mind that the ferry can take from an hour, if all is well, up to several days, if the sea is a storm. The whole trip will cost 10-15 thousand rubles per person in both directions. For two - the same 20-30 thousand, as on the plane.
It was coined to facilitate planningroute. It looks like this: you take a train to Moscow, drive to Anapa or Krasnodar, take a bus to the ferry, then a ferry awaits you, then a bus from Kerch to Evpatoria. Everything happens in much the same way as in the previous version. The only difference is that all modes of transport are included in one ticket, and you will definitely leave at the appointed time. The price here is the same as in the second way, the journey time is from 40 hours one way.
The bus "Moscow - Evpatoria" is, perhaps, onefrom the cheapest ways to get to the resort. A trip for two persons in both directions will cost in the amount of 10 to 15 thousand rubles, travel time - from 30 hours. The bus goes to the detour of Ukraine, so here everything again depends on the crossing. If there is a storm in Kerch, then the ferry simply can not go to sea, so you will have to wait. However, it should be noted that the bus gives an advantage: in the case of a queue, he is the first to get on board the ferry. On the route, by the way, comfortable large buses with toilet, internet and air conditioning in the cabin.
The question of how to get to Evpatoria fromMoscow, worries and many motorists. The route "Moscow - Evpatoria" by car can be overcome in two ways. The first one is the detour of Ukraine. The distance is 1800 km, the journey time is about 20-30 hours without taking into account the crossing. A trip to one side will cost about 7 thousand rubles, without taking into account the cost of overnight. The second option: go through Kiev and checkpoints in the Crimea. In this case, you have to cross the border twice. On the border with the Crimea, this can take a lot of time and difficulties, so few choose this method of travel. The journey takes about 25 hours, the distance is 1400 km.
So, we have considered five possible waysget to Crimea from the Russian capital. The fastest of them was the first one - an airplane. It will take you no more than 3 hours, although it will take a lot of money: a two-way flight in two directions will cost about 30 thousand rubles. The cheapest way is a direct bus "Moscow - Evpatoria". In this case, you will spend only 10 thousand rubles for two people in both directions, but it will take a very long time: 30 hours or more. Now you know how to get to Evpatoria from Moscow and what to do in this beautiful city, which is loved by millions of people and every year they come back here for the warm sea, bright sun, magical sunsets and, of course, for health and rest.
