Russian Railways resumes passenger rail services with several East European countries in December 2015


The Federal Passenger Company, a subsidiary of Russian Railways, will resume passenger services with Serbia and Bulgaria from 13 December 2015 and with Montenegro from summer 2016.

The direct carriages between Moscow - Sofia and Moscow - Budapest will run as part of train No. 9/10 Moscow - Warsaw "Polonaise".

The direct Moscow - Sofia carriage will depart from Moscow on 13 December 2015 for the first time and from Sofia on 16 December. It will stop en route at Smolensk, Minsk, Brest, Warsaw, Bohumín, Bratislava and Belgrade in Serbia.

The direct Moscow - Budapest carriage will begin running from Moscow on 13 December as part of train No. 9/10 Moscow - Warsaw and from Budapest on 15 December. The carriage will proceed via Smolensk, Minsk, Brest, Warsaw, Bohumín and Bratislava. At the moment, the carriage is running as part of train No. 21/22 Moscow - Prague.

From 16 December, the direct carriage from Moscow - Karlovy Vary - Cheb will also resume service as part of train No. 21/22 Moscow - Prague "Vltava". The carriage will make its first run in the opposite direction on 17 December. In addition, the Moscow - Prague train will now run twice a week.

The trains on these resumed routes will feature new and comfortable four-compartment RIC carriages which have been manufactured jointly by the Tver Carriage Works and Siemens. The cars have wide sleeping bed, sockets in each compartment and a folding table in combination with a sink. The carriages are equipped with air conditioning with individual adjustment in the compartment and each car has two sanitary rooms, one of which has a built-in shower.

We also announce that from 13 December 2015, both formations of train No. 9/10 Moscow - Warsaw will use RIC carriages owned by the Federal Passenger Company.

Passengers should note that until a new train timetable is introduced, the Polonaise will run every second day with carriages operated by the Polish company PKP Intercity.
