Trains from [[Tashkent]] leave daily and make the 16+ hour journey across the desert to [[Urgench]], with several stops ([[Samarkand]], Navoi etc.) along the way. Trains leave [[Tashkent]] in the evening and arrive in [[Urgench]] next day around noon. Trains in the opposite direction also run overnight. Depending on the class, you can get a 2-bunk ''coupy'' for 41 000 sum, a 4-bunk shared ''coupy'' for 25 000 sum, or you can rough it in ''plaskartnyy'' (hard-class) for the bargain price of 16 000 sum. The price for a place in a sleeping car is 50 000 UZS one way (2008). Taxis from [[Urgench]] Railway Station to Khiva are about 7 000 UZS one way. For the trolley bus see below. As Urgench is on a dead-end track some trains do not go there but they do stop at "Tortkol" (sometimes spelled "Turtgul"), which is a 20 minutes taxi ride to Urgench. Both Urgench and Tortkol have direct trains to Saratov and Volgograd in Russia (via Kazakhstan). Train timetables in Russian and English (incl. prices [in Russian roubles] and on-line booking) are available online.[https://www.tutu.travel/poezda/]
