The Trans-Siberian Railway

Saturday, 06 December 2014 15:57

Russian: "Transsibirskaya Magistral", the longest rail system in Russia, stretching from Moscow 9.198 km east to Vladivostok or (beyond Vladivostok) 9.446 km to the port station of Nakhodka. It had great importance in the economic, military, and imperial history of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union.

The Trans-Siberian Railway is the great way to see the massive country. The full rail trip on the passenger train from Moscow to Nakhodka now takes about eight days, passing through endless forests of birch and pine, original settlements and vast steppes. Life on the rails can be really fascinating. The route takes you past Siberia’s Lake Baikal, a waterway as big as Belgium and home to the world’s only freshwater seal, and multicultural Irkutsk. The city of Ulan-Ude is home to the country’s seat of Buddhism. Those who get into the rhythm of the stops and starts, and the passing parade of trees and towns, will find it an experience never to be forgotten.
