The best time to visit the lake Baikal is from June to September. During the summer season, it can even get quite hot (25-30°C, air temperature).
Tickets Moscow-Irkutsk cost around USD 150 (4-bed sleeper) or USD 300 (2-bed soft sleeper, 1st class). First class tickets, however, are extremly difficult to get.
Ticket costs are identical now for all citizens, the only rebates available are for students enrolled in Russia or elderly and military people.
Have fun in Siberia :-)

: Hello, Dmitri,
: I'd like to ask you how much a ticket for a Bulgarian and a British citizens would cost on the TRans-Siberian (Moscow-lake Baikal) and when is the best time to visit the lake.
: Thank you very much.
: PS: I suppose I can go for a Russian, can't I? Both of us are perminently staying and working here. Does this matter?
