Answer to both: tendency to share everything! I could barely exchange names with these guys yet they kept inviting me to dinner!

Yup. Take sleeping pills with you - it helps tremendously.
Or perhaps go in spring or autumn.

Zip, zero, nyet. Only the little words you learn whenever you are in another country for a while, like hello (privyet) and thank you (spesibah).
Not knowing Russian made it harder, of course, and if you're into socialising with random folks on the train you're going to have a harder time with that - though they will try regardless. I got offered food by three people at three occasions, all of whom spoke zero English.
I managed just fine in the end, given that I am now here in one piece.

Definitely the best city, good for sleeping and not noticing :)
EDIT: lol, I meant that I must have been asleep while my train passed by this place! :O
