Trans-Siberian Railroad Tour: Moscow – Vladivostok & Vladivostok – Moscow

Route: Moscow - Kazan -  Yekaterinburg -  Novosibirsk -  Irkutsk -  Lake Baikal -  Ulan Ude -  Khabarovsk -  Vladivostok.

Russia is a mysterious country and many tried to understand it but even Lev Tolstoy and Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote about the Russian restless soul torn between oriental traditions and western civilization. To understand Russia one should get on a train and cross it from the East to the West. For this purpose the Trans-Siberian Railway will be perfect — the most famous railway in the world — the path to the heart of Russia.

Thousands of kilometers from the shores of the Pacific Ocean to the Baltic Sea — you will hear the beating of the iron heart, what it is silent about, what it is inspired by. Just trust the road and the country will reveal its unexpected sides.

You will see Russia in all its historical greatness, in the mixture of cultures and fortunes, in the architectural splendor and extravagance unifying different people and religions.
