Tolstoy train

Seating Options

First Class on the Tolstoy train is everything you’d expect. From the opportunity to travel solo in your own sleeping compartment, to attentive service and a well appointed space. These private compartments contain everything needed for complete comfort. You’ll find linens, a small table for work or snacking, a power outlet and reading lights. Double sleepering compartments offer the same amenities in a private compartment for two people, comprised of an upper & lower bed.

The first class car has a total of nine compartments with one or two beds per compartment. Luggage can be stored under the bed or in an upper storage area. There’s a coat rack and air-conditioning in each compartment. You’ll find a restroom at the end of the car.

So why not wake up to a new day and a new country?

Meals & Concessions

All travelers will find snacks and drinks available for purchase from their car attendant. But passing through history and traditional European landscapes, you’ll also find the perfect blend of Slavic hospitality and Russian ambiance in the Tolstoy’s full-service restaurant car. This non-smoking, air-conditioned car serves traditional Russian and European food able to satisfy even the hungriest of travelers. Not to be outshined by the food, you’ll find a welcoming atmosphere in classic reds and gold with tables for 3-4 people, as well as bar seating. (Be aware that the restaurant is cash only (RUB and EUR accepted) and closed during border checks.) So whether your appetite is gastronomic in nature, or you’d prefer to stretch your legs and lift a glass to your new best comrades, cheers. You’ll definitely enjoy this part of the great Tolstoy story.

On Board Services

Here you are crossing borders, languages and customs. That’s why you’ll find a personal attendant in every first class car of the Tolstoy. Not only to help with creature comforts, but whatever needs you might have. You’ll also find a currency exchange on board, particularly handy since the restaurant does not take credit cards.

Services at the station

Unique experiences are part of what traveling is all about, and you’ll find the train stations deliver that as well. Available services at individual stations will vary, but most offer information and ticket counters, as well as waiting areas. Typically, you can also find a Luggage Office or storage lockers so you can enjoy the surrounding neighborhood, shops and restaurants unencumbered.
