Journey presentation and Highlights

Russia is a mysterious country many, tried to understand it, but even Lev Tolstoy and Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote about the Russian restless soul, torn between Oriental traditions and Western civilization. To understand Russia, one should get on a train and cross it from the West to the East. For this purpose the Trans-Siberian Railway will be perfect – the most famous railway in the World — the path to the heart of Russia.

Thousands of kilometers from the shores of the Baltic Sea to the Pacific Ocean — you will hear the beating of the iron heart, what it is silent about, what it is inspired by. Just trust in the road and the country will reveal its unexpected sides.

You will see Russia in all its historical greatness, in the mixture of cultures and fortunes, in the architectural splendor and extravagance, diverse and united, unifying different people and religions.

You start your journey in the ancient and mysterious Moscovia. The journey continues, next stop is Kazan – the capital of the ancient Tatar Khanate, the place which connected Christianity and Islam. Yekaterinburg, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk – each city conceals many secrets. It was here where the History of Russian State was made, History full of contradictions.

Lake Baikal is the entry point to Russian Asia. Locals call it the «Sea of Baikal». It is located in the center of the Asian continent, on the border of Irkutsk region and Republic of Buryatia. It’s the deepest Lake on the planet, the largest natural reservoir of fresh water.

Ulan-Ude – last Russian city on this journey. Next stop is the exotic Asia: Mongolia – Ulan-Bator, Chinese Beijing. From the East – the sun rises and moves back to the West.

You will return home enriched with new knowledge. When you will tell about your impressions, you will be listened to, open-mouthed with surprise. Transsib will turn your whole idea of Eurasia upside-down, the crossroad of two different parts of the World, Europe and Asia.

This is Russia: to solve its mystery – one has to cross it from the West to the East…
