Hello,
I know there is a train from Moscow to Paris and it stops close to my hometown in Essen. However, Essen is not possible to select on the russian train ticket website:
booking here
It's only possible to select big towns en route such as Berlin or Paris :-(
I am worried that the train will be booked when I try to buy the ticket as soon as I get to Moscow as I am on a tight time budget and want to catch that train on a special day.
Is there any other website where I can buy the ticket?
Thanks for…

Hello fellow travelers
Can anyone recommend an agency where I can get an LOI for a Russian tourist visa that I want issued in Tashkent. I see lots of agencies advertising but all I have read will only issue LOI's for visas to be collected in country of residence. I know from experience that the Russian Embassy/consulate in Ulan Bataar will only accept LOI's issued through an agency in that city, or would back in 2013 when we applied, but I can't seem to find out is it's a similar situation in…

I'm packing for the Trans Siberian railway (we'll be on the train for quite a while). We're also going to Mongolia later in the trip.

My question is, what are the size limitations for luggage on the train? We'll be riding in 2nd class (four beds) and I know everyone in the compartment. I'm usually the one responsible for bringing all the necessities, so I want to see what the maximum bag size I'll be allowed. Are we only allowed to put the bag under the beds? Or can I push it against a wall?

Hi. So I just finished my online tourist Visa application. How important is the hotel information for the Visa? We are still undecided on which hotels we will be booking and would like to even wait until we arrive to find something.

I used some hotel address and names but I haven't booked anything with them. Does this information go on to my visa? What if I want to change hotels after the visa has been issued? Or is visa registration simply done at whatever hotel I stay up, regardless of…

Hi,

we will be in Krasnoyarsk in a little over a month. We wanted to do a river tour either to Yeniseysk and then go back with a bus (?) if possible or go further and fly back. Cam anyone give us advice on how to organize such a tour? We have a car so we need to go back to the starting point to get it ;)

Thanks a lot for your help!
Friedrich

Hi...

Can I depend on avtovokzals to have left luggage or lockers? If not, do some have facilities and others don't?
The station I am very interested in is in Yaroslavl city. The bus station and train station aren't in the same place there and neither is in the center of town. Could I possibly store my sack at a cafe or something similar or maybe at the bus line itself? The station building looks fairly large so they probably have enough space for something..

Hello,

Has anyone travelled on the Paris to Moscow sleeper train with a bicycle. There's conflicting information on the internet. A lot of travel companies say 'no'. The Russian trains website says 'yes' if folded, but also 'no'...

Be great if anyone had any first hand experience.
Thanks in advance,
James
