The Trans-Siberian Railway is a legendary railroad that crosses Russia from West to East. Its starting point is Moscow, and the latter is Vladivostok in the Far East, where it is close to China, Korea, and Japan. The Transsiberian crosses the most interesting places of Russia. On the way there are 87 cities, which are the most attractive for tourists, in addition to Moscow and Vladivostok - Yaroslavl (or Nizhny Novgorod, depending on the route), Ekaterinburg, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk. The Trans-Siberian Railway crosses 16 major Russian rivers, including the Volga, Kama, Ob, Yenisei, Irtysh and Amur. The bridge over the Amour is the longest on this railroad: about two and a half kilometers. On the way to the train, depending on the route chosen, from 70 to 160 stop points, there is a car park that will last from 1 to 40 minutes, but on average it takes about 20. The Transsiberian was a wish of the Russian Emperor from 1891, who wanted to connect the borders of the empire, the West to the East. Originally, the Trans-Siberian was built for a practical reason, it was a way to transport goods through Russia. But today it is a symbol of hope and common identity.
A trip can start from Moscow or Vladivostok. From Moscow to Vladivostok, the journey takes one week. Some tourists, wanting to feel the scale of the country, pass this way with no stops, admiring the views outside the window, and communicating with other travelers. Several times a year, the luxury train "Golden Eagle" runs the Trans-Siberian. Its design is stylized as a popular Russian craft. The choice of direction will depend on the continuation of your trip: do you prefer to stay and visit Moscow after the trip or would you rather visit Beijing?
The Trans-Siberian is a way to slow down the pace and to get enjoyment from simple moments in a different manner, and not just reaching a final destination. It is an excellent way to discover Russia, and more importantly, to discover yourself.
