The central square in Podolsk is Ulitsa Lenina (Lenin Square) where the city's main streets meet. From here Prospekt Lenina runs north across the River Pakhra. It is possible to get around the city on foot, although bus no. 4 runs directly between the railway station and the Ivanovoskoe Estate ('Imenie Ivanovskoe' bus-stop) and buses no. 1, 21, 22, 39 and 45 run from the railway station to the Podolye Museum Reserve ('Voenkomat' bus-stop).
Just outside of Podolsk is the village (posyolok) of Dubrovitsy which is famous for the beautiful Our Lady of the Sign Church which is part of an estate there. Although it is possible to walk here from the railway station, especially in winter when the River Pakhra is frozen, it is probably best to get a bus here. Bus No. 65 runs between Dubrovitsy and Podolsk Railway Station. Bus No. 417 also runs directly to Dubrovitsy from Moscow's Yuzhnaya metro station.
