Hi, I might be moving to Skolkovo soon and I'm curious about the living conditions there. Any info on shops, gyms, etc?
And, realistically, how long would it take me to get to the city via public transport?

Thanks, folks :)

I work there.

Which part of Skolkovo are you moving to?

There's an Auchan and shopping center nearby.

There's a gym in the School of Management, membership is $1.2K a year, and there is also a Dr. Loder nearby which is a bit cheaper.

You can walk to the city (Skolkovo is right on the border of the city) but there is nothing to do there. Bus takes about 30min to get to the metro, and then another 20min to get to the very center of Moscow.

It's a nice place to live, and there is seldom lots of traffic, but Skolkovo is being developed (both housing and office) really fast right now so traffic might get worse.
