Reading a Russian Train Ticket
We provide an itinerary in English with every Russian, or international, train ticket that we sell outlining all of the important information. However, if you do not read Russian (for Russian domestic and Trans-Siberian tickets), or German (for many of our European tickets), and would like to know what all the information on a train ticket actually means, then we have put together a brief guide for you.
We have included the three paper ticket types that you will most commonly come across, as well as brief guides on what each bit of information means. If you would like to print them out, or save them for future reference, each ticket is available as a PDF by clicking on it. Alternatively, we have a PDF that includes all three tickets.
