What is the difference between the train ticket classes?
Posted by , Last modified by on 20 July 2012 03:50 PM

On Russian trains the classes of carriage you will come across will depend on the route and the train you have chosen. Generally speaking, the classes will be as follows:


Sleeper Train

  • First Class – Two-berth cabin with the best services and staff.
  • Second Class – Four-berth cabin with reasonable/good services and staff.
  • Third Class – Open carriage with 54 berths; similar to a dormitory.


Seated Train

  • First Class – One or two seats either side of an aisle with generous leg space and a table.
  • Second Class – Two seats either side of an aisle with less leg space and generally no table.

For a more in depth description of what each ticket class offers, please visit our dedicated carriage class page.
