How's night train from Moscow to Veliky Novgorod?

Is the bed on the train comfortable enough(2nd class) and how's the bathroom?

I'm considering between take the night train or just go straight to St.Petersburg and do a day trip to Veliky Novgorod. Thx.

Hi, bed is comfortable enough, you have to share compartment with 4 people but it is safe. Bathroom is only a toilet, for most of the train it is just a hole in the toilet pod, new ones has nice bio toilets. No shower.

It is ok ride for short trip but I would take it for 4 days like Moscow - Irkutsk.

It's OK. In summer they run an additional older train which may be in worse shape.

If you are traveling on Sat. or Sun. you can arrange other type of train transport. Search forum for the recent post on "Chudovo" (w/o quotes).
