How to drive to Luzhniki Stadium
Access to Luzhniki Stadium area will be restricted for all traffic on FIFA World Cup 2018 Russia™ match days, with the exception of public transport and holders of special entry and parking passes for the stadium area. Unless you are a holder of such a pass, you should probably give up the idea of driving your own or rental car to the arena, and use public transportation instead.
The address of Luzhniki Stadium is Luzhnetskaya Embankment 24, Building 1. If you are driving from a neighbourhood in the southwest of Moscow, take Prospekt Vernadskogo. From Sadovoye Ring, take Komsomolskiy Prospekt. Access to Luzhniki Stadium from other parts of the city is via Third Traffic Ring. From some neighbourhoods inside Sadovoye Ring, it may make sense to take Frunzenskaya Embankment to get to Luzhniki Stadium, if traffic is not too bad.
The Metro station nearest to Luzhniki Stadium is Vorobyovy Gory on Sokolnicheskaya Line. The stadium is a ten-minute walk from there. Luzhniki Station, which is part of Moscow’s Central Ring, is approximately the same distance away.
One of the closest bus and trolleybus stops is Luzhniki Station on Third Traffic Ring, which is also a ten-minute walk from the stadium. It can be reached by bus М3, С12, 64, 255 or 806, or trolleybus 28. There is another stop nearby, Luzhniki Stadium on Komsomolskiy Prospekt, which is, more or less, within the same walking distance.
