If you go out of the station, just outside you will find a yellow bowser selling Kwas the Russian drink made from fermented rye bread. I was advised to try this by a friend and it was a firm favorite by the time I left...More

There is nothing overly special about this train station in Irkutsk except that you can't help but have a sort of sentimental and wistful love for it because of what it represents. Coming from Moscow you will have travelled for 4 days and nights to...More

It's a busy station, clean and quite attractive. When I was there a steam locomotive was sitting at one of the platforms. Otherwise there's not much to get excited about.

I've traveled through similar train stations and, even though it is a stop for the Siberian Express, offers little information that foreign travelers can readily find. The building is old but serviceable with adequate restrooms and food service. But finding out your train and platform...More

The railway station is fairly outdated. I could not find any charger at this place. Also the transportation option is limited to tram and bus into the city.

We we don't speak Russian and managed go work out where the train left from. Unfortunately, and no fault of the station, the train staffed by Chinese males was disgustingly dirty.

The station is just a stop on the Trans-Siberian. The station is usually crowded and open round the clock. It is located on the other side of Angara from the downtown. I waited for my train and had to listen to all kinds of peddlers,...More

This Station is very old fashioned and beautifully 1960s, with little booths and dark Formica little shops. It's teaming with people though and please have your wits about you. Taxi drivers try to scalp you. Try and ring ahead at your hotel to find out...More

If you stopover here on the Trans Mongolian or Trans Siberian train, you will have lots of stairs to negotiate.
