Port Baikal –KBZD– Irkutsk –Krasnoyarsk– Slavgorod – Kazan – Moscow

What could be more interesting than crossing almost all of Russia from west to east by train? After all, this is an opportunity to realize how huge and rich country is, how heterogeneous and united it is at the same time. You will see the sights of Russian cities, enjoy the contemplation of endless expanses, visit the deepest lake on the planet.

The Transsib is a transport artery with a length of 9288.2 km. It is the longest railway in the world, connecting the east and west of Russia, covering 7-hour zones, crossing the Ural Mountains and Siberian taiga, Europe and Asia, 87 cities, 16 large rivers. This is not just a series of mesmerizing views, picturesque landscapes and "scenery" outside the train window, it is also a very solid experience, in terms of the richness of impressions, not worse than to climbing Mount Everest or rafting on the Amazon.
