The Trans-Siberian Railway is a legendary railway crossing the whole of Russia from west to east. Its starting point is Moscow, and the final point is Vladivostok in the Far East. The Trans-Siberian Railway is the longest railway in the world (9 288 kilometers in total). Crossing the whole country by train is a great opportunity to understand Russia.

Thousands of kilometers from the shores of the Baltic Sea to the Pacific Ocean will show you the country in all its greatness, the mixture of cultures and fortunes, architectural splendor and variety of peoples and religions.

We will start our journey is the ancient Moscow. We will see the symbol of the whole state, the Moscow Kremlin, walk along the Arbat Street and enter the Cathedral of Christ the Savior.

Our next stops are Kazan, Yekaterinburg, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk — each city has its own special style and beauty.

Lake Baikal is one of the major highlights of the trip. Being the deepest lake on the planet and the largest natural reservoir of fresh water, it is called “the sacred sea” from ancient times. We will also see Ulan-Ude, a city of native Siberians (Buryats), where different religions, traditions and cuisine mix.

After that, there will be three very relaxing days on board of the train. Picturesque scenery, tasty Russian cuisine, live music and board games will create a peaceful and friendly atmosphere.

The end point of the route is Vladivostok. During the city tour we will cross the two enormous bridges, and then get to view points to see fantastic hills, relict forests, beaches and azure bays.
