The Impressive Bird of Russian Railways: Strizh train

The Swift train (or Strizh in Russian) operated by Russian Railways is an upgraded version of the Spanish Talgo train, which became a significant part of the local rail network on May 6, 2015.

As a rule, Strizh trains offer Second and First class seating carriages as well as luxury cabins that come with private bathrooms. Covering the topic of the general onboard amenities, all coaches are air-conditioned and equipped with spacious seats with folding tables, reading lights, power outlets, and even individual heating control!
