WELCOME TO TRIP IN TRANS-SIBERIAN JOURNEY
TRANS-SIBERIAN RAILROAD (TRANS-SIB)
Trans-Siberian Railroad, or simply Trans-Sib (two contemporary names), or the
Great Siberian Way (historical name), is a perfectly equipped railway through
the whole continent that connects European Russia with Siberia and Russian Far
East. Trans-Siberian travel is a perfect chance to get acquainted with real and
true Russia as it is. This travel will introduce you to unbounded open lands;
you will enjoy the beauty of Ural, Siberia and Baikal region nature. This
journey, which lasts about a week, won't leave you indifferent.
During this trip you will pass through eight time zones, territories of 14
provinces, 3 regions, 2 republics and one autonomous region of Russian
Federation. You will also cross 16 of the greatest Eurasian rivers: Volga,
Vyatka, Kama, Tobol, Irtysh, Ob, Tom, Chyulym, Enisey, Oka, Selenga, Zeya,
Bureya, Amur, Hor, Ussuri. The Trans-Siberian Railway also goes along the
Baikal Lake shores. Unique Baikal Lake is the deepest lake (records depth 1637
meters) and the biggest water reservoir on the planet. Its shores and
surroundings proudly take place among the other beautiful places of earth. One
can enjoy there views of snowy mountains, transparent clear water and unique
nature. Near the Baikal shores stands the only train station Slyudyanka-1,
which is really unique, as the building is completely made of marble. It was
built in 1904 as a monument to a great labor of railway builders. Trans-Sib is
also famous for its numerous bridges (the biggest one, over the Amur River, is
2612 meters in length), tunnels (the biggest, under the Amur River, is 7 km),
and train stations (the most famous is Novosibirsk Station, which for some time
was the biggest in the whole USSR).
The actual length of the Trans-Siberian Railroad on its main way, from Moscow
to Vladivostok, is over 9,288 kilometers, covering nearly all Eurasia. It's the
longest railway on the planet. It comes through two continents, Europe (takes
19,1% of the whole length) and Asia (takes 80,9% of the whole length). The
1778th km of Trans-Sib is relatively considered to be a border between Europe
and Asia. There, near Pervouralsk, at the foot of slight Central Ural Mountains
stands a monument that symbolizes the border between two continents.
During Trans - Siberian journey you will sit at the train and watch
the land go by. You can find that interaction with other passengers, both
Russians and tourists, is what makes trip an unforgettable experience. Travelers
can enjoy stopovers in many of the Russian cities and towns along the route.
