Trans-Siberian Railroad

Trans-Siberian Railroad

There are few railroads as legendary as the Trans-Siberian. Spanning the entirety of Russia and running nearly 6,000 miles, it is the longest railway in the world and a great way to tour the far reaches of Siberia. Whether you take the rails from Moscow to Vladivostok or cut through Mongolia or China, we’ve got all the guidebooks, maps and literature you’ll need to prepare for your long-distance journey. The Trans-Siberian Handbook is a great place to start.
