Although a train ride is not the fastest way to travel between the magnificent Russian capital and the most romantic city in the world, it's, without a doubt, among the most spectacular ones. Since there's no express train from Moscow to Paris, you spend one and a half day onboard a well-equipped night train, taking you through half of Europe. You can choose one of the 3 travel classes, each offering different package inclusions, but all of them promise a comfortable bed with a table, air-conditioning, and lockable doors. During the ride, you are welcome to dine in the restaurant car or buy some snacks from the train attendant's trolley. Keep in mind that the Moscow to Paris train route goes through Belarus, Poland, and Germany, so before setting off on a journey on an international route like this you need to carefully study the passport-administrative rules as you might need a transit visa (which is checked during border controls and cannot be obtained on the spot).
