About Trans-Siberian Railway

The Trans-Siberian Express, probably the most famous train journey in the world, is one of the best ways of seeing the interior of the country.

For those who travel for the pleasure of the journey, those who believe that getting there is as much fun as being there, Russia's Trans-Siberian Railway has long been an almost mythic experience. Trans-Siberian Railway is the longest continuous rail line on earth, each run clattering along in an epic journey of almost six thousand miles (or about ten thousand kilometers) over one third of the globe. For most of its history, the Trans-Siberian journey has been an experience of almost continuous movement, seven days or more of unabated train travel through the vast expanse of Russia. A great part of the pleasure of such a trip is simply sitting back and watching the land go by. However, most travelers on the Trans-Siberian Railway find that interaction with other passengers, both Russians and tourists, is what makes the trip an unforgettable experience. Today, with far fewer travel restrictions, it is possible to use the rail journey as the core of a more varied tour. Travelers can enjoy stopovers in many of the Russian cities and towns along the route, from the historic Volga port of Yaroslavl to Irkutsk and the scenic Lake Baikal region.

Transsib, Trans-Siberian Railway or Great Siberian Way (historical name) is an excellent equipped rail-track through the all continent connecting European Russia, its largest industrial areas and the capital Moscow with its middle (Siberia) and eastern (Far East) areas. Trans-Siberian Railway consolidate Russia, which is a country laying through 10 time zones, in unified economic organism but more main in unified war-strategy territory. If it wasn't be built in due time Russia with very much probability wasn't likely kept Far East and Pacific ocean coast for itself - as it couldn't kept Alaska not connecting with Russian Empire by stable means of communication. Also Trans-Siberian Railway is the way gave a stimulus to development of eastern areas and involved them in economic life of another part of the huge country. And now Trans-Siberian Railway as geo-political conception has a meaning as way connecting Center and Pacific Ocean, Moscow and Vladivostok, and a little broader as way connecting ports of West and the capital of Russia, and also exits to Europe (Moscow, St-Petersburg, Brest, Kaliningrad) with ports of East and exits to Asia (Vladivostok, Nakhodka, Vanino, Zabaikalsk); but not a local way connecting Ural with Far East. Limited interpretation of the term "Transsib" supposes that we tell about the main passenger way Moscow - Yaroslavl - Yekaterinburg - Omsk - Irkutsk - Chita - Vladivostok, the precise way of it is given below. Actual length of Trans-Siberian railway by the main passenger way (from Moscow to Vladivostok) is 9288,2 km and by this indicator it's the longest railway on the planet running across by land almost all Eurasia. Tariff length (cost of tickets is calculated by it) is a little more - 9298 km and doesn't coincide with concrete one. There some cargo around lines at various sections. Transsib track wide is 1520 mm. The length of Trans-Siberian Railway before the First World War from St-Petersburg to Vladivostok by northern passenger way (via Vologda - Perm - Yeakaterinburg - Omsk - Chita - Harbin) was 8913 verss or 9508 km.

Trans-Siberian Railway passes through territories of two parts of the world: Europe (0 - 1777 km) and Asia (1778 - 9289 km). 19.1% of Trans-Siberian Railway length is in Europe and 80.9% of the length is in Asia.

From 1956 Trans-Siberian Railway route is next: Moscow-Yaroslavskaya - Yaroslavl-Main - Danilov - Bui - Shar'ya - Kirov - Balezino - Perm-2 - Sverdlovsk-Passenger (Yekaterinburg) - Tyumen - Nazyvaevskaya - Omsk-Passenger - Barabinsk - Novosibirsk-Main - Mariinsk - Achinsk-1 - Krasnoyarsk - Ilanskaya - Taishet - Nizhneudinsk - Zima - Irkutsk-Passenger - Slyudyanka-1 - Ulan-Ude - Petrovskiy Zavod - Chita-2 - Karymskaya - Chernyshevsk-Zabaikalskiy - Mogocha - Skovorodino - Belogorsk - Arkhara - Khabarovsk-1 - Vyazemskaya - Ruzhino - Ussuriisk - Vladivostok. This is the main passenger way of Transsib. Finally Trans-Siberian Railway formed to the beginning of the thirties when normal operation of shorter Chinese Eastern line became impossible through war-political causes and South Uralian way was too overloaded owning to USSR industrialization began to that moment. Until 1949 in Baikal area Trans-Siberian Railway main way passed by Circum-Baikal railway: via Irkutsk - along Angara river - Baikal station - along Baikal shore - to Slyudyanka station; in 1949-56 two routes functioned: old one along Baikal shore and new mountain pass one. Moreover passing route first was built in 1-track version (1941-1948) but it became 2-tracks and the main one to 1957.

From June 10, 2001, after starting new summer shedule, almost all long-distance Trans-Siberian trains were went by new route via Vladimir - Gorky with way out to "classical way" in Kotelnich. This way allows to pass trains with higher route speed but it will possible to tell that it's the main way of Transsib only after 2-3 years of continuous expluatation of this way. Moreover Trans-Siberian Railway kilometrage as before is passing via Yaroslavl - Shar'ya. Trans-Siberian Railway pass through territories of 14 regions, 3 territories, 2 republics, 1 autonomous region and 1 autonomous district of Russian Federation and 87 town are situated at it. Trans-Siberian Railway crosses 16 large rivers: Volga, Vyatka, Kama, Tobol, Irtysh, Ob, Tom, Chulym, Yenisei, Oka, Selenga, Zeya, Bureya, Amur, Khor, Ussuri; over 207 km it passes along Baikal lake and over 39 km by the shore of Amursky Bay of Japanese Sea.

Another epic journey may be made on the Trans-Mongolian Railway. It runs from Moscow to Irkutsk (Siberia), skirting Lake Baikal and then entering Mongolia. The journey to the Mongolian capital, Ulan Bator, is remarkable for its dramatic scenery. The journey concludes in Beijing.
