Everything Starts With First Class
In May 2001, railway transportation in Russia underwent a significant transformation, when Russia, by order of President Vladimir Putin’s government, sought to encourage the creation of private passenger railway service companies. The Grand Express was the first private train from St. Petersburg to Moscow to emerge as a result of this innovative move. It is today a leader among overnight train experiences in Russia.
|"With all the amenities of a hotel, Grand Express offers one-of-a-kind trips from St. Petersburg to Moscow and back."|
With all the amenities of a hotel, the Grand Express train offers one-of-a-kind trips between Russia’s two most renowned cities. The concept is uniquely spectacular. Whether you are traveling by train from St. Petersburg to Moscow, or again by train, from Moscow to St. Petersburg, you’ll be treated to a world of lavish surroundings. Relax with a hot shower before slipping into one of the Grand Express’ famously cozy bathrobes, or sip lemonade at any time of the day or night in the restaurant car. The menu offers a wide selection of hot or cold meals from a wide variety of European cuisines, and the windows provide gorgeous views of Russia’s countryside as it passes your window. You experience all this by train, St. Petersburg to Moscow!
Even at night, when the darkness outside engulfs the view, there is still plenty to see from your suite with a convenient selection of movies to enjoy. The only possible downside is that you’ll probably not finish the movie as the gentle rocking of the Grand Express train lulls you into peacefully relaxing slumber. This Moscow to St. Petersburg train is truly a dream hotel on wheels!
One of the many perks of the Grand Express is the level of personal service. If, when getting your Grand Express tickets, you register for their bonus program, you’ll gain access to such perks as private meals in your suite, flower delivery, luggage delivery, and more! This Moscow to St. Petersburg train also offers for its passengers its singularly useful magazine, “Grand,” a publication that contains invaluable traveling information, as well as interesting data about the train and the trip as a whole.
