i prefer traveling to moscow by train - cause its more romantic or well... at least more old fashioned than going by plane. :) of course its much longer: vilnius-moscow takes 15 hours. i cant say that it super comfortable trip - but i really like it. :)
i need russian visa and belarussian transit visa - cause i crossed Belarus.
on my way to moscow i was sharing my compartment with russian-lithuanian girl from vilnius and i seduced her to drink some beer. we had veeeery long walking to wagon-restaurant, we had to walk through at least 7 wagons and back. it was real fun. :) cause train is shaking and swinging. :) on my way back to lithuania my neighbour was a man from kazakhstan, unfortunately not borat. so i didnt offer him to have some beer. :)
its definitely worth to try train ride to moscow or any other post-soviet railway. :) its like little time travel back. :)
