TRAIN TICKETS PRICES
Prices were updated on June 2014 special for the coming summer season.
The best type of train is
FIRMENNY (special, particular). They have not only numbers but the
particular names also. The most popular trains on Trans-Siberian direction
Many tourists likes to stop for 1-3 days in the city along the way to Baikal lake or China. The most interesting cities are Yekaterinburg, Novosibirsk, Tomsk, Krasnoyarsk, Irkutsk, Ulan-Ude, Vladivostok. If you want to make a stop(s) you should buy several tickets from 1st city to 2nd, from 2nd to 3rd etc. for exact dates. Price doesn't depends on numbers of stops. It might be situation when tickets eg. from Novosibirsk to Irkutsk are not available in Moscow's ticket offices. That's unpredictable and is mysticism of our railroad system. But in most cases I can buy ticket for any destinations. Prices depends on train class, car type and additional services, seasonal regulations. Most of the Trans-Siberian trains leave from Yaroslavsky train station. The nearest metro stop is Komsomolskaya.

I'll be glad to make an efficient and suitable itinerary of Trans-Siberian trip for you. I need to know number of travelers, dates, possible stopovers and for how many days, car class. I prepare detailed itinerary with train numbers, timetables, prices for available tickets. I really recommend to buy tickets in advance especially during the hot tourist season - May-September.
I provide services of purchasing tickets for local prices. I charge only for my services and nothing over the ticket price.
I need your full name(s) better in Russian (copy of your Russian visa is very helpful); passport number(s) and prepayment (on my bank account, via PayPal or Western Union) to buy tickets for you. I can send you tickets via DHL, FedEx etc. or I can bring you tickets when you are in Moscow.
