Trans-Siberian Railway: Moscow to Vladivostok

Day 1: Moscow

Day 2: Moscow

Ready to explore Moscow? We'll pick you up from your hotel after breakfast for a guided tour that includes a visit to the KGB Headquarters, the Bolshoi Theater, and, of course, the famous Red Square. Here we'll visit the GUM Shopping Gallery and the Cathedrals of St. Basil and Kazan, as well as Lenin's Mausoleum.

Day 3: Moscow- Yekaterinburg 

You can't leave Moscow without visiting the Kremlin, where the country's power decisions are made. We'll see the four cathedrals, as well as the Armory Museum and its treasures: war objects, sacred chalices, and even valuable Fabergé eggs

In the afternoon we'll take a tour of the Moscow Metro, a real subway museum where we'll find stations decorated with mosaics, polychrome crystals, and marbles. After the tour, we'll return to the hotel to pick up your luggage and take you to the station for the night train to Yekaterinburg.

We'll visit the Cathedral of the Spilled Blood and Ganina Yama, where the bodies of the Romanov family were hidden. We'll also stop in front of the obelisk marking the border between Asia and Europe and at the memorial erected in memory of the victims of the Stalinist repression, before taking you to the station to take the Trans-Siberian Railway.

Days 6 & 7: Yekaterinburg - Irkutsk

Day 8: Listvyanka

You'll arrive in Irkutsk and we'll be waiting for you at the station to take you to Listvyanka. In this beautiful town on the shores of Lake Baikal, you'll have the rest of the day free to take a boat ride, explore the St. Nicholas Church and the museum dedicated to Baikal at your own leisure. Did you know that it is the deepest lake in the world? You can also take the chance to sample the local cuisine.

Day 9: Lisvyanka - Irkutsk

After breakfast, we'll start our road trip to Irkutsk, stopping first at the Taltsy Museum of Wooden Architecture - a real open-air museum! We'll then continue the tour to Irkutsk, also known as the Paris of Siberia.

Here we'll enjoy a panoramic tour so that you don't miss any of the city's attractions, and in the late afternoon, we'll take you to Irkutsk station, where you'll hop back on the Trans-Siberian Railway towards Vladivostok.
