Some advices for those who haven't bought their tickets with Kazantip Voyage. The first thing you need to do is to find the platform. It's not very easy because everything is written cyrillic. Usually you have about a half an hour to find and install in your wagon. The train will consist of several wagons, usually over 15. The number of wagon is indicated in your ticket and on a window of each wagon. The SV wagon (marked "CB" in russian) is located in the middle of train.
Right before entering your wagon you must show your ticket (and sometimes your passport) to the conductor. People who accompany you and help you with your luggage are allowed to board. And all you have to do then is just to find your compartment and your place in the wagon.
We advice you to provide yourself with some food because not all trains have a dinning car!
