Strizh is the outright definition of Punctuality ! Faster than Sapsan and Lastochka... Not as comfortable as the Sapsan.... Punctuality is fail-safe ! Best way to bounce between Moscow and Nizhny Novgorod!

The best way to travel in comfort between Moscow an Nizhny for is low cost. Trains depart regularly, which makes it convenient. The trip was only 3.5 hours.

Strizh provides very fast and comfortable transport between Nizhny Novgorod, Moscow and Peterburg cities in Russia. It is cheap, often enough, on suitable times. Suitable for business people, as well as families.

The train has been in service since 2014. It was built by Siemens and it is more comfortable than the cheaper Lastochka. It travels on average 150 km/h. What I found inconvenient that from Moscow to N.N. most passengers are seated looking backwards. There is...More

Fast way to travel between Moscow and N.Novgorod. We traveled 1-class sleeping compartment and we found it very good. A bit tight, but it's ok for 4 hour trip. Photos attached!
