Hi Globies!
I got an information that Russian Railways already sells tickets through the internet. But sorry - I cannot find the proper website... I see only the middle-men. who charge comission for bookings.
Perhaps you know trze proper net address - the site could be in Russian...
Thanks
Wojtek

Hi,

Have you tried the official website of Russian Railways? They had a link to ticket purchasing there.

http://rzd.ru

They had two langugages available, English and Russian, but the Russian only had the link to timetables and ticketing.

Best regards
Krys

Thanks Kris - I know this site and I tried to make there my booking but so far I have problem only: they allow to book only 45 days or less in advance...
In the meantime I found really good and detailed map of Russian rail network:

Finally I got my ticket! So where is the secret?
OK. Lets go step by step:
1. go to rzd.ru - you have to know Russian - so far there is no English version of the ticket page
2. Register - latin alphabet is accepted here
3. Log in and go to "kupit' biliet" section. You can buy it 45 days or less before travel
4. Make o choice of destination and date; Station names should be entered in cyrylic - copy them e.g. from Wikipedia
5. Make the choice of the train from the list (they use Moscow time!)
6. Make the choice of class and upper/lower bunk
7. Enter the names of the passengers in latin plus passport no ("inostrannyj dokumient")
8. Now the biggest problem: payment. They accept only the cards who offer 3D-secure payments. And not every bank is accepted - you have to try!
9. If paid print you confirmed reservation with a bar code - it will be exchanged at the station of origin to the ticket.
Enjoy!
From your room you can buy the ticket from Moscow to Vladivostok on the Pacific now! :)
