INTO THE GREAT WIDE OPEN
The 9000km Trans-Siberian Railway network connects Moscow with Vladivostok. While many tourists spend seven consecutive days on board a single train without disembarking, we take a series of long-distance sleeper trains and visit six cities over 21 days. For bookings, try realrussia.co.uk. New Zealanders must obtain a Russian visa before arrival. Talk to your travel agent or visit newzealand.mid.ru/ tourist-visas.htm for information about this.
The Trans-Siberian Railway is a grand way to see the world’s largest country.
