Russian Railways announced a significant increase in the number of trains during the long weekend in early May. From April 28 to May 10, 240 additional trains will depart from Moscow and St. Petersburg. They will connect both capitals and carry passengers to the most popular destinations.
For Muscovites, these are Kostroma, Kazan, Novozybkov, Cheboksary, Saransk, Belgorod, Lviv and Penza.
Petersburgers traditionally go to Kirov, Volgograd, Izhevsk, Kazan, Orel, Yaroslavl, Veliky Novgorod and Cheboksary for May holidays. Trains connecting the Russian capital with Belarusian cities - Minsk and Brest - will make an additional flight.
