> By TRAIN
Trans Siberian Railroad goes through Perm, making the city perfectly
accessible by train. Connections with Moscow are excellent. Every day,
some 10 trains from Moscow roll into the Perm II Train station. This
journey takes around 24 hours (depending on the train) and is an experience
on its own. The trains that serve the Moscow - Perm section are all
identical to the famous train Trans Siberian Express and have only got
sleeping cars. Every train car has got 1 or 2 "provodniki",
who ensure your trip to be a smooth one. They provide fresh bed linen,
they keep the train clean, they make sure that nobody oversleeps their
destination and they provide any kind of help during the journey. The
train stops only in the bigger cities along the way, such as Vladimir
Russian trains have 3 classes. A bed in a third class carriage is cheap,
but because of the low comfort and the lack of any privacy, travelling
in 3rd class is not recommended. Second class train cars offer more
comfort as they have lockable 4-bed compartments with extra luggage
space and curtains for more privacy. First class compartments are identical,
but have only 2 beds in 1 compartment, offering maximum space and privacy.
Every train car has its own toilet with washing sink, as well as a "samovar"
- a tap from which you can take boiling water freely, allowing you to
make yourself a tea, coffee or instant meal. All trains have a restaurant
car where one can choose from a simple, but cheap menu. Furthermore,
it is possible to buy some products during the train stops (usually
10-20 minutes). People always come up to the train to sell drinks, bread,
(home-made) bakery, fruits and other items. But watch out not to miss

Travelling in Russia is perfectly possible as well as safe. Nevertheless,
here are some travel advices that might make your trip a more convenient
- Take appropriate clothing! Summers in Perm are hot (around +30C) and winters
are cold (-25C). Although winter temperatures are very low, the air in Perm
is relatively dry, making the frost less harsh. Nevertheless, it will be best
if you have a pajama along to put under your jeans in case of a cold, windy
day or in case you will spend a long time outside. For those who are taking
one of our catamaran/rafting trips: take a spare set of clothes in case you
get wet, take a hat to protect your head from the sun and don't forget a pair
- Take a copy of the personal information page in your passport as well as
a copy of your visa along to prevent yourself from potential problems regarding
(custom) formalities, just in case you lose your passport.
has plenty of cash machines from which money can be withdrawn; most of them
accept Visa, Master, Maestro and Cirrus cards. Furthermore, nearly every bank
exchanges Euros, USD and English Pounds to Russian Rubles. Currency exchange
booths are also available on Perm and Moscow airports, allowing you to get
some local currency straight on arrival. The image on the right shows the
current exchange rates for Euros and USD, note that banks and currency exchange
facilities usually charge a (small) commission.
- Do not take unofficial taxis but stick to either official taxis or public
- When travelling long distances by train, take some toilet paper along as
most public toilets in Russia do not always have it. Also take a large cup
and a tea spoon, enabling you to make yourself a tea, a coffee or an instant
meal while on the train.
- Take into account that very little people in Russia speak any other language
- About using telephones in Russia. For interlocal calls, dial 8, wait for
the tone, then dial city code followed by the number. For international calls,
dial 8, wait for the tone, then dial 10 followed by country code (without
00) and the actual telephone number in that country. Mobile telephones have
good coverage in Perm and the larger towns/villages in the province but often
have little or no signal outside them.
