Your Trans-Siberian Experience

Travelling in the luxury of the Imperial Russia train, visiting many of the largest historical and cultural centres of the vast Russian Empire, is an incredible way to journey through the heart of Russia. One of the most famous railways in the world, the Trans-Siberian Railway is thousands of kilometres long, running from the shores of the Baltic Sea to the shores of the Pacific Ocean, with an important junction to the Trans-Mongolian Railway.

Embark on a memorable journey that will take you through continents and centuries, from the modern majesty of Beijing to shimmering Lake Baikal - which covers an area the size of Holland! - and the largely unvisited Siberian cities that have served as the backdrop for some of Russia's most monumental moments...you'll have a front-row seat to it all.
