Taxi for Dubna
Be careful with using taxi in Moscow. Use only a registered taxi which has a taxi label at the car. The prices are unpredictable and usually much higher than in West Europe. To avoid unpleasant situations, always ask the driver to write the price (at least approximate) before starting the trip. If the driver does not tell the approximate price in advance, it is better not to use this taxi. If you need a bill, ask about this option in advance since quite often the bills are not provided. Please take into account that drivers and other people in service usually speak only Russian. So, to avoid any misunderstanding, please write your request in advance on the piece of paper and ask for the written response.
Please take into account that Dubna has 2 railway stations: "Bolshaya Volga" and terminal "Dubna". Both are inside the city and have a good bus/taxi connection with any part of the city. However, the terminal station "Dubna" is much closer to the Dubna hotel (~400 m) where the participants will reside. Do not use a bus to get the hotel from the terminal station "Dubna". Instead, it is much easier to get the hotel on foot or by taxi (70 rub). The taxi in Dubna is cheap and safe. Please, take into account, that due some reasons the station "Dubna" is available for limited number of trains from and to Moscow. Look at the schedule (The train schedules Moscow-Dubna-Moscow) which of stations is the end station for the train.

HOTELS IN MOSCOW
Hotels in Moscow are usually rather expensive. We recommend to look for the proper hotel and book the room yourself by internet (see e.g. HRS or Best Hotels Russia). Note that Moscow has a diverse metro transportation system. The metro is fast, safe and convenient (except of the peak time). So, it is not necessary to book hotel at the city center. A remote hotel can be also optimal if the metro station is nearby.
