How to get to Saratov?
Saratov is a major cultural and economic center of the Volga region. The city, of course, deserves attention and visits. This article will tell you how to get to Saratov.
Saratov is located 850 km from Moscow, quite a lot of trains run to it - YU, 137Y, 009Г, 017М, 086В, 007Ц, 005Г, etc.
017М, 007Ц and 005Г - branded trains; they are called "Saratov", "Kazakhstan" and "Lotos", respectively. They are more comfortable than a regular train, however, as you understand, you should always pay extra for comfort.
Thus, a train ticket for the 047Y will cost 1600 rubles - a second-class seat, and in the firm "Lotos" for the same reserved seat you will have to pay out 2,300 rubles. By the way, ordinary trains also sell seats, such a place will cost 1000 rubles. Although, of course, if you consider that the trip lasts about 15 hours, it can be concluded that not everyone is satisfied with the seating position.
From Moscow to Saratov can be reached by plane - it is profitable, if we talk about temporary resources, and it is completely unprofitable, if we talk about material costs.Basically, SaratovAirlines’s planes fly to Saratov, a ticket costs about 5,000 rubles, and the journey takes one and a half hours.
So, as we said above, from Moscow to Saratov - 846 km, which is equivalent to about 70 liters of gasoline, which means that a one-way trip will cost about 2500 rubles. It turns out more expensive than the train, but this is only if you go alone. If you take a friend or even a couple of friends with you, you can split the cost of gasoline and save money. In addition, making a small "hook", you can visit Lipetsk and Voronezh on the way to Saratov - also very interesting cities.
From Paveletsky railway station, several times a day, buses to Saratov depart every day. On the way, the bus should be 16 hours, which, of course, is rather difficult. At the same time, it is important to note that the ticket costs about 1,500 rubles, which is not too different from the price of a reserved seat in an ordinary train. So, of course, the train in this situation seems to be a better option.
