Train Stations in Russia

If you are considering visiting Russia, you will likely find that one of the best ways to travel is by train. Russia has a well-developed railway system that will take you to virtually any city and town in the country. The European side of the railway system is better developed and more extensive, but the Asian side is also more than adequate. If you do plan to travel by train, you should remember that trains are a common form of public transport in the country and that the train carriages and stations may not be as clean or new as what you would find in other countries. This does not mean that you should try not to make use of the train stations in Russia, but rather that you will not want to try and sleep over in the train station or spend long hours waiting in terminals.

Most people traveling to Russia will start their travels in Moscow. Moscow is an excellent example of how well-developed the rail services are in Russia. There are eight major train stations in the city and all of them are served by the Moscow Metro. This means that you can easily get around the city by use of train and also that you’ll be able to travel from here to other Russian cities such as St Petersburg. Notable Russian train stations include: the Leningradsky Rail Terminal, the Yaroslavsky Rail Terminal, the Paveletsky Terminal and the Savyolovsky Rail Terminal. Each station is known for providing the best rail services across a specific area, so try to find out which one provides the best access for whatever part of the country you are planning to visit before booking your ticket.

If you are planning to travel across borders, please be aware of the fact that you will be expected to go through customs as the border and not at the train station. Therefore, you will want to keep the necessary documentation on your person when making these trips. Traveling by train in Russia is probably the most cost effective way to get around the country. There are usually taxicabs available at the various train stations waiting to take you to your final destination, but these can be expensive and many prefer to walk instead. Visitors will find that they can book their tickets by standing in line at the ticket office. However, if you are worried about language barriers or do simply not enjoy the idea of standing in a line waiting during your holiday, your travel agency will probably be able to book all your tickets on your behalf for a small fee. So make use of the train stations in Russia and get around quickly, cheaply and easily during your holiday!
