Site: Prague-Moscow train tickets sold out till end of January

Tickets for a direct train running between Prague and the Russian capital Moscow are sold out until the end of January, reported on Wednesday. The news website said Czech Railways and its Russian equivalent were looking to boost the number of passengers making the 27-hour trip. There has been a direct route between the two cities for over 50 years, but the service was improved with the introduction of the current timetable when passengers were no longer forced to change trains at the Czech town of Bohumín.
