From the train station:
Walking: 10 - 15 minutes.

As you exit the train station, and standing with the station behind you, turn to the right and begin walking. After about 150-200 meters the road starts to incline. Keep walking until you reach the main road-bridge - it should be on your right. Cross from the right side of the road to the left and go up the steps in front of you. Walk up the hill. (The road-bridge should now be directly behind you). Cross over to the other side of the road and take the first street on the right. You are now in our street (Sportivny Pereulok). Our building is the 3rd building in the right-hand side (No. 5A); it is yellow and 4-floor, you can't miss it! Head around the back, it's the first steel door (No. 1 -12). Please enter 1 followed by * on the intercom and we will let you in.

On the same side of the road as the train station take tram No.1 or No. 2 - heading to your right. Get off at the first stop, just before the main road-bridge - the journey is only 2 minutes. Cross from the right side of the road to the left and go up the steps in front of you. Walk up the hill. (The road-bridge should now be directly behind you). Cross over to the other side of the road and take the first street on the right. You are now in our street (Sportivny Pereulok). Our building is the 3rd building in the right-hand side (No. 5A); it is yellow and 4-floor, you can't miss it! Head around the back, it's the first steel door (No. 1 -12).

Take a bus N80, 90, 20, or 61 and get off at 'Dzhambula' stop. It is the 1st stop after the bridge (you will ride for about 20-30 mins and will cross only one bridge). Cross the street, then turn right. Follow the same street that you were riding by bus for about 80m then turn left to the small street and go uphill. After 3-4 minutes the road will end at the yard with three 3- and 4-floor buildings. You need the most right yellow 4-floor building. Left entrance, press 1* on the door.
