Transport and desposition Elabuga city

How to get to Elabuga.

It is not very easy to get to Elabuga as it is aside from highways and large cities (except Naberezhnye Chelny). But no matter, it is possible and necessary to get to Elabuga!


?? ?????? ? ???????!The nearest railway station is Naberezhnye Chelny, it is in 22 km (minibuses and buses go to Elabuga from here; railways station is under the same roof with bus station), but the railway station Naberezhnye Chelny is not a junction, so the quantity of trains passing through it is low. For example, only one train a day leaves from Moscow to Naberezhnye Chelny (the trip lasts for 22 hours), it arrives in the evening, leaves back in the morning, and tickets for it are sold very quickly.

Besides this, in about 100 km there are large stations Mozhga and Agryz, from here it is possible to get to Elabuga in two hours, but because of location in different regions, there is no direct communication between them. All this makes impossible visiting Elabuga without overnight stay.

Air service

?? ???????? ?? ???????!The nearest airport is Begishevo (it is near Naberezhnye Chelny), from here by bus to Naberezhnye Chelny or Nizhnekamsk, and then by bus or minibus. It is also possible to fly to the international airport Kazan, and from there go by bus or taxi to Elabuga.

Water transport.

? ??????? - ?? ?????????!Maybe the most romantic and beautiful way to get to Elabuga is a tourist trip over Kama River on a motor ship with a stop at steep bank at “Devil’s fort”. Besides tourist routs, pleasure motor ships call at the pier of Elabuga (like “Moscow” or “OM”) from Nizhnekamsk, it is maximum 15 minutes of slow motion from it to Elabuga down the river. Besides this, fast boats like “Meteor”, “Rocket” sail from the lower reaches of Kama (Chistopol) and Volga (Kazan). The only limitation is that this mode of transport is seasonal.

Bus service

???? ? ??????? ?? ????????It is more comfortable to reach Elabuga by bus from Kazan or Izhevsk, but in both cases the trip lasts about four hours. Bus station of Elabuga is on distant outskirts of the Upper city, drive on minibuses 4 and 6. Old bus station has been closed long ago. Buses from Naberezhnye Chelny and Kazan usually don’t enter Elabuga, but will leave you with pleasure at city entrance from side of Kazan (at 4th micro-district) or at entrance from side of Naberezhnye Chelny (Lower circular way).

By car.

????? ????? ???????? ? ??????? ?? ??????????It is easy to reach Elabuga by car by national highway M7 Moscow-Kazan-Ufa (National highway M7 “Volga” is a highway of federal importance Moscow-Vladimir-Nizhniy Novgorod-Kazan-Ufa. Part of European route E22, part of highway from Elabuga to Ufa relates to European route E017).
