The train connects Europe and Asia, and crosses the biggest county in the world. A unique train trip with endless breathtaking landscapes.
Experiencing awwh is more wonderful when shared. Take on this trip with other nomads. We're also going to meet local creative communities in each of the stops.
We are an experienced team of nomads originally from Russia. We have local team members in every stop-over city to assure your great experience.
If you've got work to do during your trip, don't worry. We've partnered with coworking spaces in each stopover city so you can get things done fast and without distraction. Visiting coworking spaces is also a great way to connect with local communities. Coworking fees are included in all packages.
Platzkart is basically like a dorm. Beds (wich function as seats during the day) are grouped in 2 or 4 and if you are booking with partner or friends you'll be seated together but there is no door or anything and you'll experience the real life on the russian train. Choose this option if you want to get in contact with locals and have the real experience. Get an impression here.
Kupe is a separate compartment with 4 beds (2 lower and 2 upper beds). It's more calm in a compartment and has more privacy. If you travel in a group of 4 you'll be seated together and you'll have your little comfort zone to get some rest. If you are traveling solo or with a partner you'll share the compartment with locals wich is a great chance to make new friends for life. You can get an impression here and here.
