    I can really recommend a journey in 3rd class ie platzkartnii. You get to meet the real Russians and due to social control it is safe but of course unpleasant incidents can happen.

    In my case it was a very drunken Buryat man that decided to tear me down from my upper bunk in order to show me some book. I was already lying down to sleep wrapped in the bed linen. I had talked to the man (and his wife) before but then he found a drinking companion and they drank themselves into stupor. The babushka Margarita who was also in my open compartment defended me as I would surely have been hurt, had I really be torn down. The situation was quite ugly but luckily the man fell asleep for the rest of the journey to Khabarovsk.

    By the way, Margarita was travelling from a village west of Ekaterinburg where the train stops every 2 days all the way to Vladivostok to see her daughter and her family. I have been invited to go and stay in her home if I ever wanted to.
