Train travel between cities is definitely one of the best experiences you can have while visiting Russia. Using ground transportation to cover the vast distances between cities makes obvious the reality of being somewhere so different from home. Romantic and un-Western, train travel will give you glimpses of rural countryside as you sip tea made from the samovar. You can watch untouched terrain slip by and not see any signs of humanity for hours. The rhythm from the tracks is comforting as you play cards with your traveling companions or read a book. Train travel is great because you are immersed in Russian culture . . . without having to extend any extra effort.

Many people prefer to travel by train, which is not surprising since the train system is quite well developed, comfortable, and can be much less expensive than flying. Railroad is not only a great way that connects central Russia and Pacific shores, and a way to Asia, one of the most important roads to Far East countries like China and Mongolia. Besides, Russian Railroad will easily bring you from the center of the country to its Polar Circle area. Overnight trains with cover 300-400 km distances while you are enjoying your sleep on a comfortable train and next morning when you open your eyes you will find yourself far from the place you have been yesterday without even noticing that.

The railway trip is the safest way of traveling because you are not depending upon weather conditions in the air or on the sea.
