Trans-Siberian Rail Journey


This is clearly what they meant when they said It’s the journey, not the destination that counts. Express a penchant for train travel and the next question is almost invariably, “Have you done the Trans-Siberian?” It’s the journey nearly everyone wants to do, perhaps because it’s commonly said to be the longest you can make on a single train: the longest of the three trans-Siberian routes, between Moscow and Vladivostok, covers 9,258km (6,152 miles) and takes seven days. There is a longer one, from the Ukraine to Vladivostok, but as an introduction to the immensity of the world’s largest country and its landscapes scroll by cinematically as you sip champagne in the dining car, the Trans-Siberian experience is unrivaled!
