Explore the Trans-Siberian classic route that holds together the world's largest country 

Cross the largest landmass along the world's longest railway spanning almost 10 thousand kilometers.  

 


The tour travels 9,446 kilometers from Moscow to Vladivostok, passing across titanic rivers and through endless taiga.

The tour takes you beyond the Ural Mountains into the heart of Eastern Siberia, to a city of Irkutsk, a landmark stopover closest to the legendary Lake Baikal, and onward through taiga to the booming city of Vladivostok, on the edge of Russia's Pacific coast. 

 

Vladivostok is a terminus for the Trans-Siberian railway  

 

 

We loved this tour for an extraordinary thrill to experience change of landscapes and cultures as we traveled from the capital past the Ural Mountains through the scenery of Siberia to Russian Far East coast on the Pacific

Today Vladivostok is a modern vibrant city that draws attention of travelers from all over the world by its mind-boggling scenery, breathtaking views, military-historical monuments and unique spirit of resilience of local residents. 

A visit to the National Oceanarium of Russia, an unprecedented research project on the Russky Island. Without exaggeration, this is one of the most fascinating sights in Vladivostok today. It was opened in September 2016 by the Russian President in presence of the Prime Minister of Japan, the President of South Korea and many more other foreign dignitaries. The Oceanarium is the the third largest in the world.

Its main building is shaped like a colossal seashell beneath an oncoming wave and resembles the Sydney Opera House. 

You can spend an entire day here, watching walruses, white whales and dolphins perform their tricks, and while a tour guide talks about the evolution of species and the polar animals of the north, visitors stroll around a patch of evergreen tropical forest with live orchids and shake hands, or rather tentacles, with a giant plastic octopus.
