Hi,

I'll travel from Budapest to Beograd in a few weeks and I'd like to travel in the Russian sleeper(Moscow-Sofia) if possible.

It seems I can't book it online, since the ЭР icon is missing, which means e-ticket is not sold.

Yesterday I asked in the international booking office in Budapest and I was told they can't sell a ticket for this sleeper.

Do you have any idea where/how to book a ticket?

(I haven't asked Wasteels in Keleti yet, because it was already closed when I was there.)

Is it possible to buy a ticket  from the provodnik on board? Many years ago I travelled from Budapest to Venice in the RZD sleeper paying the provodnik on board. I did have a ticket though because that time it was not a global fare yet

Thanks

About ticket purchase for the Russian carriages MAV on their website says: "Hálókocsi-foglalások mind odaútra, mind visszaútra kiadhatók az EPA-rendszerből!", however recently it was reported that there had been some troubles
Maybe also special codes for issuing such tickets will help (took it from MAV itself)

Hmm...good question. Trouble with Russians is that even if it might not be possible de-jure, it can still be possible de-facto (=paying provodnik "unofficially"). Just searched for the docs regulating it, but no success. Anyhow, if we would try to guess, chances of buying it officially are slim
