How to get cheap from Moscow to Vilnius. Life hacking.

Rolls, rolls zero car. Almost like a song. The first time I see this.

You can get to Vilnius by train Moscow-Kaliningrad. Travel time is about 14 hours. Conveniently: in the evening I got on the train, I went to bed, in the morning I was already there. I choose such a train to arrive not early in the morning. The route passes through Smolensk, on the territory of Belarus, then the train enters Lithuania. If you go to Kaliningrad, you have to pass border control twice, since the Kaliningrad region is located autonomously from the rest of Russia. Because of this, there are features when buying tickets. Firstly, a foreign passport is required, and secondly, in the absence of a valid Schengen, a permit for transit through the territory of Lithuania is issued at the cashier’s office of Russian Railways.

Here is the schedule of the Moscow-Kaliningrad train. Below is the promised life hack.

The ticket Moscow-Vilnius costs 4503 rubles reserved seat and 8161 rubles coupe. Look at the following screenshot, you will be very surprised.

The Moscow-Nesterov ticket costs 1361 rubles reserved seat and 3433 rubles coupe. This is a corporate train "Yantar", absolutely the same.

The red dot on the map is the city of Nesterov, the first station on the territory of the Kaliningrad region near the Lithuanian border. You can buy a ticket to Nesterov, and get out in Vilnius. It will be cheaper more than three times! Moreover, the algorithm acts in the opposite direction too. Tested on personal experiencein January 2017. I was in Nesterov too, but for a long time,you can see here.

Now, attention, the question is: are there still similar lifehacks? Maybe you know some non-standard routes? For example, fly to Düsseldorf and then take a train to Amsterdam or Brussels. February holidays are burning, I do not know where to go.
