14-Day Trans-Siberian: Moscow - Yekaterinburg - Irkutsk - Baikal - Vladivostok

Today the Trans-Siberian railway is still the longest and most amazing rail journey; you feel as if you’re travelling back in time. From mighty, cosmopolitan Moscow we go to the city of Yekaterinburg where the family of the last Tsar was murdered by the Bolsheviks; and then deep into the heart of the vast, mysterious land of Siberia, where the deepest lake on Earth, Baikal is located.

You’ll see how enormous Russia is, what different people live there, how varied nature, wildlife and climate can be within one country.
