I have been using the rzd English site, and reading the 'guide' on Trip Advisor but get stuck at working out seats. I will be travelling with my husband from St Pete to Yaroslavl in July. I was going to buy 2 lower bunks in second class compartment on either the 124(express) or the 045 (Firmny). However, the compartments are gender sensitive. What does that mean for us?
And I have no idea when selecting the bunks if they are lower or upper unless I assume the bottom numbers are lower bunks. However, when I selected 2 lower numbers it highlighted the top number!
Help needed please!
Should I select 1 'seat' at a time? And pay for each?
