Speedier Access to Izmailovo

Last week we discovered a good route for avoiding traffic jams around the All-Russian Exhibition Center (the former VDNKh). You can also use this route as a starting point for a trip to either Sokolniki or Izmailovo since it's quicker than driving through the city center.

Turn right from Prospekt Mira onto Novoalekseyevskaya Ulitsa at the same point as last week and drive straight on until you come to some crossroads. Carry on over onto Ulitsa Pavla Korchagina until you come to some tram tracks at the end of the street.

Last week we turned left along Ulitsa Borisa Galushkina toward Prospekt Mira at this point. This time, turn right over the overpass and then follow the tram tracks. You will see Sokolniki Park on your right. If you want to visit the "civilized" part of this park you should keep the forest on your right for about three kilometers until you see the main entrance. Sokolniki Metro Station is on your left.

If you are going to Izmailovo you should follow the tram tracks to the place where they divide, where you will see a red wall on your left.

Here, take the left fork and then turn immediately right onto Krasnobogatyrskaya Ulitsa. You should drive straight on for a long time until you get to the first set of traffic lights. After these, take the first left. This will be Prostornaya Ulitsa. Carry straight on until you get to a small square and here turn right onto Khalturinskaya Ulitsa.

Drive straight on and then turn left at the first set of traffic lights onto Bolshaya Cherkizovskaya Ulitsa.

To get to Izmailovo you should turn right after you drive over the big overpass which you come to on Bolshaya Cherkizovskaya Ulitsa.
