    My family enjoyed the cable cars. We had to queue for about an hour. Not a problem as the cars are very popular. Takes around 14 minutes to reach the other side. Most people rejoined the queue and made the regurn trip. Well worth it.

    I used to travel to Nizhniy in the past by night trains. It was cumbersome, you leave late from Moscow and arrive at the dawn in Nizhniy without getting much time to sleep. This time I took the Strizh train. The travel time is around 4 hours. Very convenient. The cars were manufactured in Spain, they are narrow-bodied. but the speed is higher than in Lastochka wide-bodied train. In Strizh you get two by two seating. Between each pair of seats there is a power outlet. In each car there is a water cooler. I brought my own cup and tea bags, so I did make for myself a number of cups of tea. And I was charging my smartphone during the ride.

    used it while visiting the city. Worked very well and was punctual, clean and affordable. For us, we were there for the game - England v Panama so it was free on match day.

    The high-speed Lastochka, like Strizh, travel between Moscow and Nizhny Novgorod (distance of 442 km). The travel time is about 4 hours 15 m; it is 20 min faster on Strizh. Both trains are very punctual. Strizh costs RUB 1936, Lastochka RUB 1490. Both are cheap compared with the cost of European or N. American travel. The seating in Lastochka is 2 and 3, in Strizh 2 and 2. Lastochka is more suitable for suburban traffic than for long distance (it was used during the Winter Olympics in Sochi). It is much easier to get a ticket on Lastochka than on Strizh. Both are a better option to travel from Moscow to N.N. than the plane. Light refreshments can be purchased on board.
