Ride On The Trans-Siberian Rail­way

My Weekly Special - - Try Something New -

Sweep­ing across the vast panora­mas of the Rus­sian land­scape, there aren’t many rail jour­neys that could ri­val this one when it comes to epic scenery and ad­ven­ture. Travel in lux­ury on one of the Golden Ea­gle Lux­ury Trains where you’ll en­joy ev­ery­thing from de­li­cious din­ing to an en-suite cabin, or for the sea­soned ad­ven­tureur, opt for the more au­then­tic ex­pe­ri­ence and travel on the reg­u­lar public trains. There are three dif­fer­ent routes and all of them share the same track be­tween Moscow and Ulan Ude. Many trav­ellers opt to split their jour­ney – which takes seven days – and stay overnight at some spots in or­der to ex­plore some high­lights along the way. Pop­u­lar stops in­clude Kazan, to see the im­pos­ing Krem­lin, and Irkutsk, known as the “Paris of Siberia”, which has many beau­ti­fully or­nate build­ings. Visit www.re­gent-hol­i­days.co.uk to ex­plore a se­lec­tion of Trans-Siberian Rail­way ad­ven­tures and www.wanderlust.co.uk for some top travel tips.
