Elektrichki are suburban electrical passenger trains, which serve a region around a big city. They are quite common in all ex-Soviet countries.

In Minsk most suburban trains leave from the platforms to the right of the main railway station building (Minsk Passazhirsky). Tickets can be bought in the right wing of the train station building.

Minsk's suburban trains can be used to get to the Minsk Sea (Minskoe More), which is a large artifical lake north of the city centre.

We used a suburban train for our day trip tro Zaslavl, whose train station is called Belarus. Since 2011 this route is also served by a modern Swiss style suburan train. The single fare to Zaslavl (Belarus) was 2000 BYR for the modern suburban train and 1550 BYR for an old style train (elektrichka).

All suburban trains to Molodechno seem to stop in Minskoe More and Zaslavl (Belarus).

@Ingo: Thanks for your smiles. Yes, the old ones are much more charming. This also refers to the platzkartny carriages for trains.

Fancy Swiss train, but somehow the older ones were more charming.
