The Experiences Which Sum up the Trans-Siberian
★ MOSCOW – THE START OR FINISH
All three routes start – or finish depending on your direction of travel – in Russia’s capital of Moscow, home of sights such as Red Square and St Basil’s.
★ THE BEAUTY OF WINTER
Summer and early autumn are the most popular times to travel but for a hardy few nothing beats winter for the Siberia of our imagination.
★ EAST MEETS WEST
The Trans-Siberian is a much a cultural as a rail journey where Europe slowly melts into Asia as can be seen on this remote platform.
★ WHATEVER THE WEATHER
Despite some pretty atrocious weather the Trans-Siberian runs year round and usually on time – no issues with “leaves on the line” on this railway!
★ REMOTE STATIONS
We can’t remember the name of this stop but the photo keeps the memory alive of a typical station scene in the morning winter sunshine.
★ WINDOW ON THE WORLD
Your cabin becomes your second home with it’s unique and ever changing window on a remote world outside few actually set foot in.
★ DON’T GET LEFT BEHIND
There are frequent stops along the way and the larger stations are all hustle and bustle with passengers boarding and disembarking.
★ VLADIVOSTOK – PORT CITY
The end of the original Trans-Siberian line, this port city in Russia’s Far east is home to the Pacific Fleet and was closed to outsiders until the 1990s.
★ COSY CABIN ACCOMMODATION
Some beers, a couple of pot noodles and trying to capture the ever changing scenery on camera make this a very typical Trans-Siberian scene.
★ THROUGH SIBERIA
An ordinary photo perhaps but this rugged landscape is very much Siberia in late summer just before the autumn colours start.
★ IRKUTSK & LAKE BAIKAL
Lake Baikal, accessed from the Siberian city of Irkutsk is one of the highlights of a Trans-Siberian trip and a highly recommended stopover.
★ SAFE & SECURE TRAINS
Long gone are the days of horror stories about safety and security. Nowadays the trains are safe and secure.
★ A WORKING RAILWAY
Tourists only make up a very small percentage of railway traffic with locals getting from A to B and freight trains making it very much a working railway.
★ ROLLING INTO MONGOLIA
The Trans-Mongolian train snaking through the hills and grasslands of Mongolia – a country that is a favourite of so many people.
★ OVERNIGHTING IN A GER
The highlight of a Trans-Mongolian trip for many is the opportunity to stop off in Mongolia for a few days overnighting in a traditional ger.
★ THE STEPPE OF MONGOLIA
The scenery of Mongolia is that of open steppe and endless grasslands that eventually merge into the rugged East Gobi desert before reaching China.
★ CHINESE TRAINS
Not all trains are Russian run. Some services are Mongolian and the Trans-Mongolian train itself pictured here is actually Chinese operated.
★ CHINA’S CAPITAL OF BEIJING
Providing a distinct contrast to Moscow at the other end of the Trans-Mongolian, Beijing is the icing on the cake with the Great Wall and many other sights.
