Heading for downtown Moscow on the Aeroexpress train that runs from Sheremetyevo Airport to Belorussky Station. Its travel time is just 35 minutes and you can quickly transfer to the Metro at Belorussky. So going to Red Square from Sheremetyevo Terminal is breeze. The last time I was in Moscow, this high-speed train service didn't exist yet and taking a cab was the only practical way to get to downtown. This is a huge improvement.

On the train, food and beverage cart service, which is similar to the one on Japanese trains, is available and the business class carriage offers complementary bottled water.

At Belorussky Station. A red train makes a nice contrast with white snow. And a typical Soviet building gives them a perfect backdrop.
