Rail Holidays in Russia
T he world’s largest country, Russia stretches between Europe and Asia with coastline along the Arctic and the Pacific Oceans to the north and east and the Baltic sea to the west. You can cross the entire country in seven days using the famous Trans-Siberian Railway or, for a shorter trip, it takes just 4 hours by high-speed Sapsan train to travel from Moscow to St Petersburg. It’s entirely possible to travel to Russia (and back) without boarding a plane.
