Location & Directions

Maxima Slavia Hotel

Nearest metro: Babushkinskaya

The Maxima Slavia Hotel is a modern building set back from one of Moscow's major transport arteries in the north of the city. The surrounding area is mostly residential, with a very high concentration of green space and parkland.

The nearest metro station to the Slavia Hotel is VDNKh, which can be reached on foot in just under 20 minutes, or more quickly by buses nos. 136, 172 and 244, or trolleybus no. 76. The Slavia also minibus shuttle service to/from the hotel, running regularly between 8am and 7.30pm. Journey time from VDNKh to the Kremlin and Moscow's downtown is around 20 minutes.

Sheremetyevo Airport, which is located north-west of the city, can be reached from the Slavia Hotel by car in under one hour. Domodedovo and Vnukovo Airports are considerably further from the hotel, and guests should allow an hour and a half to reach them. Moscow's mainline railway stations are all in the center of the city, and can be reached in between 30 and 45 minutes by car.

Local Sightseeing

While the Maxima Slavia Hotel is a fair distance from Moscow's most famous sights and attractions, the area immediately surrounding the hotel does have a number of places of interest that are well worth exploring, especially for guests staying for longer periods.

The VVTs exhibition center, known in Soviet times as VDNKh - the All-Union Exhibition of Economic Achievement - is a fascinating relic of the late Stalinist period. It is a park of extravagant neo-classical pavilions, fountains, and monumental Socialist Realist sculpture, and is now home to a fascinating mixture of street market and up-market showrooms.

Near the entrance of the VVTs, the spectacular Space Obelisk houses the Cosmonautics Museum, an enjoyable tribute to the Soviet Union's historic role in space exploration.

Clearly visible from the hotel, the impressive Ostankino Television Tower is one of Moscow's most famous landmarks, and it looms large over the Ostankino Palace and Park, once the Moscow home of a branch of the famous Sheremetyev family. The palace contains a charming collection of Russian and imported applied art that has survived from the family's heyday in the late 19th century.
