Day 1-2

Begin in Moscow, the Russian Federation’s capital and largest city. Home to more than 10 million citizens, Moscow’s vast population is almost as grand as its history, dating back to medieval times. Explore the city’s unique architecture, including the Kremlin and Red Square; giant skyscrapers; and modern advances thanks to a recent economic boom. Rest overnight, enjoy breakfast at the hotel and head back out in the city — there is so much to see and do, you’re going to want to maximize your time before departing by rail for Irkutsk.

Day 3-5

Look out your window for 11th–13th-century views before stopping in Vladimir, a Golden Ring city, boasting incredible history and gold-domed churches. Back onboard, head to Nizhny Novgorod’s Volga River location before passing the Vyatka River at night. By morning, the train will stop in Perm, a notable city for Russian ballet and literature. Head on a six-hour stretch to Yekaterinburg for a break before passing through Siberia, visiting Novosibirsk, Tyumen and Omsk before crossing the Ob River for Novosibirsk. Enjoy stunning vistas with a full day riding the rails, passing the Kam, Chuna, Lya, Oka and Angara rivers, before a stop in Krasnoyarsk.

Day 6

Arriving in Irkutsk, visit Lake Baikal, the largest body of fresh water in the world. Take in the view from the Cherskiy Peak observation point, visit the Limnological Museum for more natural beauty and spot wildlife at the aquarium, before paying a visit to St. Nicolas the Miracle-Worker Orthodox Church.

Day 7

Explore Irkutsk for the day, visiting the Cathedral of the Holy Sign (Znamensky Cathedral), the graves of the Decembrists and the Museum of the Decembrists — Russian aristocracy banished to Siberia after attempting to overthrow the Russian Tsar in 1825. Needless to say, there is more history and intriguing stops than you’ll know what to do with in this city.

Day 8-10

Leave Irkutsk for Khabarovsk — get comfortable, it’s a long, scenic ride. Expect seemingly unending views of Siberian taiga (snow forests), rivers, lakes and vast natural beauty. After a pause for a quick break, head to Vladivostok, known as the Lord of the East.
