How to get to Moscow by car
From the west
From the western regions of Russia to the capital leads several routes. Drive along the one that is closer to you. The main ones are:
- the federal highway "Belarus", aka M-1;
- highway M-9;
- Mozhayskoe highway;
- highway A-101, "Moscow-Roslavl".
Of these, the most convenient is the M-1, along which freight transport is moving in a continuous stream to Western Europe and the Baltic States - and vice versa. The road allows you to go with comfort, there are practically no dangerous areas. The exception is a segment from Odintsov before turning to Ruza, be more attentive here. The route crosses the Smolensk region.
The Baltic route, M-9, also connects Russia with Western Europe and the Baltics.
Road A-100, Mozhayskoe highway,or the Old Smolensk Road allows you to get to Moscow from Kubinka, Odintsov and other cities in the western part of the Moscow region. It is an offshoot of the M-1 highway. Rather narrow road.
Route A-101 is of average quality. On it you can reach the capital of our country from Belarus, while the road will pass through the Smolensk, Kaluga and Moscow region.
From the North and Northwest
From the northern regions to Moscow leads:
- highway M-10;
- highway M-8;
- road A-104.
The first route is known as the former E-95 - the largest and most popular route. The route connects Moscow and St. Petersburg, it is well equipped - it is a pleasure to drive along it. Crosses the Leningrad, Novgorod, Tver, Moscow regions. In the Leningrad and Moscow regions, traffic jams are not uncommon, therefore, calculate the time to follow taking this factor into account. The route has high traffic, so the road is quite tense - emergency situations may arise.
The M-8 track is called Kholmogory. It leads to Moscow from the White Sea itself and leads through Yaroslavl, Sergiev Posad, Arkhangelsk, Rostov the Great, Pereslavl-Zalessky, Vologda.
The A-104 road allows you to get from Dubna to the capital.Also captures such large settlements as Dmitrov, Taldom. The condition of the track is decent, you can ride comfortably, although the traffic is active. You can get from Dubna to Moscow in about 3 hours, but consider the likelihood of delays in traffic jams.

The first leads through the following regions - Ryazan, Orenburg, Penza, Chelyabinsk, Moscow, as well as the Republic of Mordovia, Bashkiria, Tatarstan. The M-7 track runs parallel to the Volga River and crosses Tatarstan, Chuvashia, Bashkortostan, Nizhny Novgorod, Volgograd, and Moscow Regions.
Both tracks are of medium quality: there are different sections of ease of movement.
