First Visit to Russia
Using Russian Rail's website I purchased tickets from Warsaw to Moscow on the overnight train and then tickets on the Sapsan from Moscow to St Petersburg. Instructions were clear and concise making the purchase of tickets hassle free. I would most certainly use their services again and would have no hesitation in recommending their services to others.
