Taxi is also not a bad option to transfer from the airport. The cost of transport to the center is about 20 euros. If you have already booked accommodation in city areas such as Borik or Diklo, you can save time by taking a taxi from the airport instead of first traveling to the main bus station and then taking the local bus.
