The Trans-Siberian Railway In Pictures

Perhaps the world’s most legendary rail journey, the Trans-Siberian Railway holds a prominent place on many a traveler’s bucket list. Stretching nearly 6,000 miles from the western capital of Moscow all the way to the Pacific Ocean in the east, these fabled iron tracks blaze through some of the most forbidding, yet fascinatingly beautiful, places on earth.

Few other journeys allow you to experience as many extraordinary environments, fabulous natural wonders, and diverse cultures in a single trip. But more than just a chance to travel across the largest country on earth, a ride on the Trans-Siberian gives unparalleled access into Russia’s dramatic and complex history and enduring psyche.

Whether you desire adventurous cultural immersion aboard the local trains, or comfort and even luxury aboard private trains, traveling the Trans-Siberian has never been easier. But until you’re ready to embark on an epic adventure of your own, you can satisfy your curiosity and wanderlust with our collection of favorite Trans-Siberian images taken from clients and MIR staff alike, showcasing some of the many sights you can spot along the rails.
