Pure rail romance…. Almost 10,000 km of pure rail romance from Moscow to Beijing, Vladivostok or Mongolia, with the Trans-Siberian Railway. Stations, crowds, hustle and bustle, amounts of luggage, train compartments, sometimes empty, sometimes it’s market day in them, farewell means arrival, is coming and going, constantly on the move, always just on. Experience Lake Baikal and the steppe of the nomads.
One of the last adventures on the railroad, the trip with the Trans-Siberian Railway to Mongolia. More correctly it should be called -Transmongolian -, because the actual trans-Siberian railroad goes from Moscow to Vladivostok. The Transmongolian, is only a cross connection from Ulan Ude to Beijing.
The romanticism of Tolstoy and Dr. Schiwago can unfortunately only be glimpsed in the station architecture. The Trans-Siberian Railway is one of the main arteries of Russian transportation and is therefore modern and well developed. The romanticism of the "steaming steel steeds", the "Tschainiks" in the train compartments, inspectors with flashing brass buttons is over. Partly double-tracked and electrified, is the reality. Nevertheless, a residue of adventure remains when traveling on the Trans-Siberian Railway.
Adventure at a small price.
When traveling by Trans-Siberian, the trip becomes a program. It is part of the vacation and should be prepared as such. Whether the journey with the Trans-Siberian Railway will be an adventure for a small price depends on many factors. Certainly the cheapest option is to travel directly without stops, in the “wooden class”. Due to the Russian railroad system, each stopover increases the price of the trip many times over. Basically, you can also say the trip from east to west is much cheaper than the other way around. An exact price information can only be given if we know the exact travel times, because there are many different options and variants on the trans-Siberian railroad.
