Trans-Siberian Railway

Stretching for over 6000 miles all the way from Moscow to the Russian Far East, the Trans-Siberian Railway can claim to be one of the wonders of the modern world.

Spanning 7 time zones and passing 80 cities and towns on the way, the “Trans-Sib” is the longest continuous railway in the world, extending from European Russia, through the Ural Mountains, into Siberia, before finally reaching Russia’s Far Eastern shores. You will pass the great plains of the Volga region and the dense forests of Siberia, travel along the world’s largest and deepest freshwater lake – Baikal – and enjoy stunning views of the Altai Mountains.
