Hi: I've read that train services from Moscow or Irkutsk with the numbers, 3, message board Irkutsk sesso, 5 or 6, are intended for international destinations only, e. Does anyone have any experience of getting on these trains during September for longer domestic routes, such as Moscow to Irkutsk or vice versawhich could take up to 80hours of train travel. If so, are there any travel agents in Russia that can arrange for that?
Alternatively, if such trains are strictly for international train, is there a big difference between these trains and the more domestic trains, eg. You cannot go Moscow to Irkutsk on train 3 OR 4. Only one of them is message board Irkutsk sesso. It makes no sence to read, if these trains are intended for international travel only or not. Go to www.
The usual rule is the lower the number -the better the train. These trains are indeed international and the railways prefer to sell long distance tickets, however you can also get tickets for russia only travel on those trains. All depends on the dates. No chance to book international tickets on rzd. Train is also international as it is Irkutsk - Ulan bator and v.

Message board Irkutsk sesso good message board Irkutsk sesso is to bring your own snacks as well as using the restaurant on board. Suggest booking through an accredited travel agent before you go. Great places to see along the way are Lake Baikal, l Novosibirsk. Omsk depending on which way you travel. My wife and I had planned a trip on the Trans Siberian Railway for months. We read every book and website we could find.
It was suggested that we start our journey in Beijing and then travel thru Ulan Bator with a stat in a ger camp and then continue onto Irkutsk and Lake Baikal where we spent a few nights. Travel on the train was great, we enjoyed 2nd class 4 berth as we wanted to meet other travellers and share their experiences. We especially loved Lake Baikal, the blue lake was stunning.
We continued onto Yekaterinburg and saw where the last Tsar of Russia was murdered with his whole family.

The restaurant car was good message board Irkutsk sesso I am glad that our agent suggested we take some of our own snacks along as well.
Beautiful lake with stunning scenery. Russian Gateway Tours in Australia arranged it all for us with 3 star hotels as we requested, sightseeing with very professional guides, transfer and 2nd class rail. We particularly preferred 2nd class as we could mingle with message board Irkutsk sesso passengers. We had read all about this trip for years and finally made it. We saw the wooden houses in Irkutsk where the Decembrists made their homes.
On the way to Lake Baikal we stopped at the little wooden village display park. We spent several nights at Lake Baikal taking in the scenery and fishing. The train was comfortable and the train hostess showed us where we could get some tea along the way. Just keep in mind that Russian Gateway Tours in Australia is among several tour companies spamming this forum with self-promotion! For me, their self promotion tactic undermines their credibility and trustworthiness!
