Third class is the cheapest and least comfortable way to travel overnight. Compartments of third class are not separated by doors so there is no privacy. No services are included in the ticket price. We do not recommend our customers to travel in third class sleepers unless they purposefully seek such travel experience.
" Easy to use and find. Sleeper train was well worth paying for first class to get a cabin for 2. Really enjoyed the trip and the service.
We did 3 journeys in total, one sleeper. The sleeper was faultless, the high speed from Moscow to St Petersburg was better than an economy flight for seat space, the train from St Petersburg to Tallinn was very old and slow but lovely way to watch the countries go by. Would do all the trips again in the same way. "
