    The rail networks in Russia was extensive and convenient. You may get to every city by train. However, a lot of Russians can’t speak English including the salesclerk or train staff. Thus, learning some Russian words or phrases before your trip seems necessary.

    The trip on the Lev Tolstoy train from St. Petersburg to Helsinki was comfortable and all facilities onboard were modern. If you hold a ticket on the Allegro or Lev Tolstoy train, you can take the electric train at the Helsinki central station to the airport for free, which was quite convenient.

    I purchased a ticket from Moscow to Vladimir and the agency gave me an electronic confirmation which was very easy to take the train. No need to exchange the physical ticket and just show the passport. The high speed train was really fast and punctual, and the attendents were always nice.
