Baikal Irkutsk Trans Siberian

Trans-Siberian Train No. 001/002 “Rossiya” 

Timetable is below on this page 

Train No. 001/002 “Rossiya” express is one of the best trains that Russian Railways has to offer to the Trans-Sib travelers. It is a superior train operated with the highest standards of quality and service. The train is very nice and fancy, quite fast (with as little stops as possible), yet probably the most expensive scheduled train that can be found on the Trans-Siberian railway.

Like all “firmenniy” (literally - branded) trains it has its own name. It is “Rossiya” meaning Russia in the Roman script from the Russian language. The name is indicated outside of the carriages on the route plates. The train is commuting between Moscow and Vladivostok at the Pacific coast of Russia covering the whole distance from the west to the east of the country. Train 002 going eastwards departs Moscow on odd dates at 23:45 and arrives to Vladivostok after 6 full days spent on the way. On the reverse route, train 001 departs Vladivostok at 15:30 (Moscow time) and heads its way back to Moscow for another 6 days.

The train has both 1-st and 2-nd class cabins. Unlike all other trains, “Rossiya” carriages are painted in its own band colors and the interiors are decorated in the unique way. Carriage attendants wear uniforms specially tailored for the train’s personnel. "Rossiya" offers its passengers a full range of services. Some of the coaches provide extras already included into ticket price. These are TV sets in the cabins, newspapers and magazines, vanity bags (with soap, napkins, toilet paper, etc.), and, the most important, meals served into compartments.

We recommend this train for relaxing and enjoyable trip on the Trans-Siberian railway with the most of comfort available. “Rossija” is very popular among foreign tourists who take the journey across Russia. Although, during high tourist season it may be quite difficult to purchase tickets especially at the intermediate stops (e.g. Irkutsk) since the train may be fully booked in a very advance. Another reason is that Russian Railways Company often tries to save tickets primarily for passengers who are taking the whole trip from Moscow to Vladivostok or back.
