I find it highly unlikely that Stalin would leave Moscow that early. What's the farthest he went? Tehran/Yalta?

Tehran is further south of Moscow than Yalta, so Tehran was the farthest that Stalin traveled during World War II. For the most part, Stalin was very fearful of flying, and he chose to take a train to Yalta.
