"The people you meet" Russia Favorite Tip by salisbury3933

Russia General: 192 reviews and 175 photos


Favorite thing: One of the great things about the long train trips is that it gives you the chance to get to know the locals. Here are two guys that we shared a four person compartment with. Russians tend to want to chat on the long train trips, and thankfully I had kept up my Russian studies since university. Great fun, and Russians tend to be very open people, so you get to learn a lot about your travelling companions.
