Perm Trans Siberian train connectionsThe 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 and Kirov.
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 the train!

For detailed train info and prices, check: Trans Siberian trains or online train reservations.

Krasnov can reserve you any train ticket, we would like to refer to the price list for the most common examples. Might your destination not be among them, then simply contact us and we will find you the most appropriate train according to your request.
Please, note that advance reservations are needed for the Beijing, Ulaan Baatar and Vladivostok trains as they are very popular and fill up quickly. Especially if you wish to travel them anywhere between May and September, make sure to reserve tickets in advance!


Perm's huge Kama river connects Perm directly with the Volga, making the city easily accessible by water. Cruiseferries frequenting St.Petersburg, Moscow, Yaroslavl, Kazan and Volgograd can be embarked from Perm's Port in the centre of the city. Note that for most cruises only return tickets are sold.
As ferries are operated by different companies and time tables are irregular accordingly, please contact us for particular dates. The route Moscow - Kazan - Perm takes around 8-10 days.

Travel advices

Travelling in Russia is perfectly possible as well as safe. Nevertheless, here are some travel advices that might make your trip a more convenient one:

  • 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 of slippers.
  • 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.
  • Approximate exchange-rate of Euro and USD to Russian RublesPerm 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 transport.
  • 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 than Russian.
  • 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.
