Ride On The Trans-Siberian Railway
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.
