To Brest by train Aug 29, 2011
We arrived in Brest by train from Minsk. It was actually a train which came from Novosibirsk in Russia. The trip from Minsk to Brest took about 4,5 hours and a single ticket for the platzkartny carriage cost 21.530 BYR (approx. 3,00 Euro, August 2011).
Brest is an important stop on the main railway line between Berlin (Germany) and Moscow (Russia), as all carriages must get their boogies exchanged here from European standard to Russian broad gauge.
Brest's Central Train Station is situated north of the city centre. Both a large bridge and a smaller footbride span the rail tracks and connect the station building with the city on the southen side of the tracks.
