Moscow, Berlin, Paris In 36 hours By Train


The first train has arrived in Paris on a new cross-continental route that connects Moscow Berlin and Paris.

Run by Russia’s train company RZD, the 3200ks trip took 38 hours, at speeds of up to 200km per hour.

The route, Moscow – Berlin – Paris, is the second longest train ride in Europe. The longest is the direct service from Moscow to Nice which began last year.

High speed rail cross nations is becoming the norm

The cheapest fare was NZ$600, and the most expensive ticket costs NZ$1802. For comparison, the price of an average Moscow-Paris one-way plane ticket is almost half the price.

The service has 8 sleeping carriages, a bar and dining car.

    I’ll miss good old days when it took me almost a week to get to Saint Petersburg form Belgrade on an Inter-rail train during my student days :)
