    Russia is in a bad way right now, the ruble is crumbling and crime is on the rise. If you're from a western country there's a good chance government goons imprison you for nothing.

      The weak ruble is actually a good deal, as you get more money. Central bank used a variety of instruments to control the inflation and as such it hasn't crashed as yet. It is a busy and important service connecting several areas (Mongolia for instance) and although a tourist can be treated with somewhat higher suspicion by locals, it shouldn't be hard to sort it with a bottle of vodka. Ultimately, this is what makes it a proper trans-Siberian trip

        Yes but their fiat nosediving has created and uptick in crime. Someone is more inclined to mug you when they have less purchasing power

          The good thing is that all criminals either fighting in Ukraine, or practising in Bellarusia. I would avoid Sankt Petersburg though. Use Moscow

              What's the point, it's miles away. The famous longest line (10100 ish km) is Moscow - Vladivostok, approx 8 night service (slow). Sure, more fun to do sleepovers there and here. It's, though presumptuous to feel that drinking for that many days straight is boring, aren't these stories, I mean a real russian village life with a likely complimentary fight what makes the experience?

    Overrated at the best of times, enjoy seeing the exact same tundra for days on end while stopping at a series of crumbling Detroits.

      Be aware that drinking alcohol has been banned in Russian trains for a while, it's still accepted in the restaurant car but they won't hesitate to have the police take you off the train if you cause a scene.
