I want to travel through Russia for 30 days from St. Petersburg to Vladivostok. I'm currently learning Russian and should finish A2 in August when I want to start the trip.
I read about booking the train tickets and found out, that it's possible to buy the tickets at the train stations so you can be more flexible. However I also read that the tickets in summer can be more expensive than usually. Is it still worth it to buy the tickets in Russia or should I stay safe (also in regards to having a safe tickets in case they are sold out?) and book the tickets now? Especially since I want to make 3-4 stops during the trip.
