The Trans-Siberian Railway is the longest railway in the world and a pride of Russia. The Great Siberian Way goes through 2 world continents, 12 Russian regions and 87 cities. The Trans-Siberian Railway is featured in the "Guinness Book of Records" for three categories: total length, number of stations, and construction time. Continuing southwards after lake Baikal, by the Trans-Mongolian railway, an ancient tea-caravan route, connecting China with Russia via Mongolia, you will have a chance to see three unique civilizations during this lifetime journey!
