RUSSIA - RZD tickets

The Russian Railway Company (RZD) operates one of the largest and most expansive railway networks in the world. Trains connect almost every city, town and village in this enormous country. And train travel in Russia is often much less expensive than traveling by air.

Polrail Service is an official RZD agent, and whether you wish to travel by the high-speed "Sapsan" train from St. Petersburg to Moscow, or by Trans-Siberian sleeper train from Moscow to Vladivostok, we can issue the tickets for you!

Ticket prices

Ticket prices for trains throughout Russia depend on the season. Prices are higher at the during the holidays (New Year and Orthodox Christmas), at Easter, and during summer vacations (July and August). Prices can also rise as trains fill up. The earlier you decide on your tickets, the better chance we have of finding accommodation for you and a good price!

Tickets for journeys within Russia and for international connections to/from Russia can be booked up to 60 days before the travel date.

Discounts for children

RZD Russian Railways offers discounts for the youngest travelers – children up to age 4 travel for free, although a no-cost ticket must be issued for them. Children from 5 to 9 years old travel for half price.

The Moscow - St. Petersburg route

One of the most popular Russian rail routes is that between Moscow and St. Petersburg. During the day, high-speed "Sapsan" trains travel between the two cities, allowing a travel time of just 3 hours 45 minutes. If you have time to spare, or would like to save on the cost of a hotel room, we can recommend traveling by a comfortable night train, sleeping while you travel.

You can reach Moscow by direct train from many European countries, including Germany (Berlin), France (Paris, Nice), Italy (Genoa, Milan), Austria (Vienna), the Czech Republic (Ostrava, Prague), as well as Poland (Poznan, Katowice, Warsaw). 

Direct connections to St. Petersburg also exist from Poland (Katowice, Warsaw), the Czech Republic (Ostrava, Prague), as well as from Austria (Vienna).
