A library with contemporary Russian and Finnish literature opened on the Lev Tolstoy train that travels between Moscow and Helsinki, TASS reported, quoting the press service of the Federal Passenger Company.

Passengers can ask their conductor for a library form, fill it out and take a book. The collection includes books of various genres for all ages. The library will be open for two months – from Feb. 5 to Apr. 5 – as a part of the project “Travel With a Book.”

The Lev Tolstoy has transported passengers along the route between Moscow and Helsinki since 1975.
