Train tickets Anapa – Moscow are already in short supply at the end of August

A subscriber to the tg channel “Roof of TourDoma” drew attention to the problem – the lack of tickets for conveniently timed train departures from Anapa to Moscow on dates at the end of August.

“It’s difficult to return from the resort to the capital on August 24–25. There are only places left for the train departing at 4 am. We will be on vacation with a small child, this is not suitable for us, because we will have to stay up all night and then travel for a day and a half,” he writes to the editor.

We checked the availability of tickets on the Russian Railways website. Indeed, the only available option on August 24 was the train leaving Anapa at 04.17. There are 16 tickets per compartment for it costing from 7 thousand rubles. and 59 – in reserved seat carriages – from 4.8 thousand rubles. (hereinafter the availability and prices are current as of 18:00 on June 10. – Ed.).


On evening trains departing at 20:40 and 22:05, only one compartment was available.


The founder of the “Pink Elephant” travel agency network, Alexan Mkrtchyan, whose company is actively working in the south of Russia, gives such recommendations to tourists. Firstly, regularly, several times during the day, track tickets on the Russian Railways website. From time to time they go on sale as some passengers cancel already booked trips. By the way, for the trains on August 25, we found six compartment seats on sale for the evening trains – perhaps just “discarded”.


Another option is to catch tickets to Moscow from the Tonnelnaya station, which can be reached from Anapa by taxi in about 40 minutes. There you can take trains No. 30, 288С, 234С, departing from Novorossiysk.

Another way to return to the capital is by trains traveling from Crimea through the Taman-Passenger railway station, which is a 1.5 hour taxi ride from Anapa. On August 24, we managed to find tickets for train No. 164C Feodosia – Moscow, the operator was not Russian Railways, but the transport company Grand Service Express.


It is also possible that in the second half of the summer Russian Railways will add additional cars to trains from Anapa and other resort cities. Then more seats may become available for sale.

Let us remind you that Anapa airport has been closed since February 2022. Tourists now mainly use rail transport.
