URGENT! Trying to book ticket on nikolaevsky express, but cant seem to find them online...

by micmik

Am trying to book train ticket from Moscow - STP on 31 Jul and STP - Moscow on 5 Aug. Plan to try 2 of the 3 - Grand Deluxe, Red Arrow and/or nikolaevsky express.

Nikolaevsky express appears to be the most interesting of the 3, but they do not appear to operate on 5 or 6 Aug? Can anyone advise which are the days (of the week) the train run between Moscow-STP and STP-Moscow? Nor do they run from Moscow-STP on 31 July. Or am I missing something here..

Also, which is the cheapest website to book these tickets as I noticed the prices differ in different websites. Or should I ask my hotel concierge to book instead?

THANKS!1

After fast trains between Moscow and St’Petersburg were implemented a lot of “slow” trains were cancelled, including Nikolaevskiy express. Grand express and Red Arrow are still operating on daily basis.

The cheapest site to buy tickets is of course site of Russian Railroads www.rzd.ru , but its English version is still under long construction. You will need to use Russian-speaking friend or goggle translator, sometimes it doesn’t accept foreign cards. To buy ticket for the night train you have to choose time 21-23 on the site, so it will show you full list of the night trains.

Hi

I am trying to buy train ticket thru rzd.ru. Can someone help:

1. Does "2E" (economy class) represent 4 person compartment?
2.Also, I found there is a train icon in some trains no. eg. 002 Red Arrow which means e-ticket. Does e-ticket no need to exchange ticket in the railway station i.e. I can use the e-ticket to get on the train?

Many thanks.

Do not care so much about Nokolayevsky express - between Moscow and St.Petersburg there is a heavy rail-road trafic - more than 5 trains go every day. You may face any ticket problems only if chose Frieday or Saturday as a day of departure - some people work in Moscow while living in St.Peterburg, and there are some crazy Moscowinas who come to St.Petersburg for weekends just to walk around. E-tickets for sure need exchanging into real ones at the railway station. Lokals prefer night trains between Moscow and St.P., what I advise to you also. They depart late at night and arrive early in the morning. One of the reasins is to avoid the day heat. Recently I heard many people reporting that airconditioners do not work properly - they changed the carriages for the "modern" ones.
Good luck!

1. First word in the column (before 2E, 2K, ZP etc.) refers to type of the compartment. Platskart is 6 person open compartment, Kupe is 4 person compartment, Lux is 2 person compartment.

2. Yes train icon before train rout means electronic registration, available only for some trains. It means you don’t have to get original ticket in the machine in the railways station. You should register on the site, buy the ticket, you will get booking code and after that you should make electronic check-in if it is available for your train.

Travel Tips for Moscow

Using an ATM

by irvbur

Although ATM machines are starting to be more widely used, the transaction is always in local currency. BE PREPARED. For example, do not go up to an ATM and think you'd like to withdraw $500 worth of local currency. You first must know the amount in local currency that $500 will buy. I always carry a currency cheat sheet when travelling. In addition to ATM transactions, it's also easier to bargain and make purchases.

Customs at the border

by deeper_blue

Getting past the Russian border can be a longwinded and awkward process. Of course you must have a visa, then there can be a lot of hanging around at the border checking luggage.
NB Taking roubles out of Russia is a crime!!
I never knew at the time and luckily my wallet wasn't checked.

Kruchchyovki Blocks

by MrBill

Kruchchoyovki blocks are those horribly unaesthetic concrete apartment buildings that you see all over Russia, the former Soviet Union, and many satelite country cities, such as Prague, Budapest and Bratislava, too. They are named after Nikita Kruschev who saw them as a low-cost way to house workers and alleviate a housing shortage.

Moscow has over 13.000 of these 5-9-12-17 & 21 story buildings, which were built between the 1950s and 70s. They are mainly small, one, two and three-bedroom apartments with tiny bathrooms and closet-sized kitchens. Without almost any maintenance since they were built, they are now mostly very shabby and in need of serious repairs. Cooking and the odors from neighboring apartments often permeate the hallways, stairwells and creaking elevators.

However, after the disolution of the USSR, many long-time residents were given these apartments, and they remain many families largest form of private equity. Be it ever so humble there is no place like home, and at least they do not have to pay rent.

On the positive side are that they all generally have a common area or a park near or around them, so at least the residents have some green space and a sense of community connected to their dreary apartments. In areas of the former USSR where there are earthquake dangers, these pre-fabricated apartment buildings can also be death-traps as they tend to cave-in, especially if the foundation is poor and not earthquake resistant.

However, cheap, affordable housing is still very much in demand. Moscow had an official population of over 11.2 mio in 2004, up from 8.7 mio in 1999, and a much larger unofficial population, as migrants from all over the former Soviet Union and from Russia's regions flock to Moscow for work or study. Replacing all these antiquated, and sub-standard buildings will take decades. And, in decades, we will likely still see many standing unfortunately.

Manezhnaya sq

by kris-t

The nearest vicinities of the Red Square, including Manezhnaya Square are the places most attended by Muscovites for the last four centuries. In XV century in the old Moscow here lived handicraftsmen and shopkeepers selling the products at the entrances of their workshops. In the beginning of Peter the Great ruling period there were set up the trading lines where fabrics and foodstuffs were sold. And quite close to it there was another trading line for selling meat and game built and it still preserves its old name “Okhotny Ryad”. The square devoted to the 5th anniversary of the Patriotic War of 1812 was constructed given the name “Manezhnaya Square” after the name “Manege”. Some years later, in 1923 Àlexandrovsky Garden was open for visitors. Today «Îkhotny Ryad» is a modern retail center. On its three underground floors more than 100 shops, restaurants, bistro, bank branches, exchange offices, travel agencies are located. Unique interiors and neighborhood with the Red Square and Alexandrovsky Garden attract Muscovites and visitors of the capital to visit the trading complex.

Walking alone the Manezhnaya square you are surprised at a special vicinity of historical monuments, heavy creations of ubiquitous Tsereteli and a Trade Centre 'Okhotny Ryad', an underground trade centre purposed to satisfy your desires and whims.

Russian Food Part II

by dlandt

Russian food can take on a different character than that which I just described in Part I. Here, you see something much akin to fast food. Sights like this little grill are quite common on busier streets, with a steady clientele of commuters, students and passersby. A stand might sell baked goods or pierogies of different styles, they might serve sweets, or they might serve a mix of things. I liked the grills. This food is usually cheap and easy to get, though you really need to be able to speak a few minimum words of Russian to be clear. Quite a few of these stablishments are run by ethnic minorities of Russia who serve their own cuisines. Talking to Russians about what they thought of this fast food, it generally seemed that they found them to vary widely in quality and cleanliness. We had no problems. A few things were great, a few things just OK. This pic was taken near Komsomol metro station, a fairly typical place in Moscow. They also serve beer.
