For more than a century, the Trans-Siberian trains have chugged across the world’s largest country and past the world’s deepest lake regardless of weather, revolution or political upheaval, providing an essential link for families and traders alike.
Transporting refugees, exotic and mundane goods and those seeking a new life, these are working trains not designed for luxury. Trans-Siberian Railway holidays are typically shared with many varied nationalities and your most vivid memories will be from these chance meetings as much as from the scenery and typically Soviet facilities.
Trace the history of this intriguing region as you pass through iconic cities and towns such as Ekaterinburg where the Romanovs met their end, Ulan Ude with its unique Buryat culture and oversized monument of Lenin’s head, and Irkutsk, near Lake Baikal, with its fine Decembrist architecture.
