train tickets russia - agency?Hello,
can anybody suggest a reliable company who can check the train tickets Irkutsk-Ulan Bator + Ulan Bator-Peking in September.
Has anybody experience with booking online by themself? I've read that the tickets are on sale 45 days before - do I have a chance to get a soft sleeper for my exact travel dates?

2You can buy tickets and check availability of tickets online directly from the train company on the rzd.ru website.
There are lots of posts about buying online. Try searching. Also there are several websites which describe the process. And now there is an English language section which supposedly works for many but not all credit / debit cards.

3Best way to get to Ulan-Bator is to take a train to the Mongolian border (Naushki) and when catch a train from there. It will be 2-3 times cheaper then to buy direct train ticket. You can check on rzd.ru probably you can buy it online. Also tickets available in Irkutsk train station.
