If you want to realize how vast Russia really is you must travel along the Great Siberian Way which is nowadays more known as Trans Siberian Railroad, running across the country from east to west. Siberian part of the railroad was constructed in late 19th early 20th centuries and turned out to be one of the most important industrial projects of that time. The length of the railroad from Moscow to Vladivostok is 9302 km (5780 miles) which makes it the longest railroad in the world. Besides the road is passing through 7 time zones and the whole train journey is a bit over 7 days.
There are many ways of making this journey.
Apart from various tailor-made group tours, we offer different service for small private groups and individuals along the route: buy train tickets from one place to another, book hotels, transfers, guides.
