We booked a cabin for 2 people and it was a great experience from the beginning to the end. The only thing that could be improved is the quality and variety of the breakfast and they should mention when items are charged separately

Great to travel with this historical train from Moscow to SPB. Please make sure you are 30 minutes before departure at the station. Leningradsky isn't a difficult station and we stood on the wrong station initially. Be careful with that. Journey was very adventurous although...More
