Secret destinations…

The best of Siberia!

The best way to discover Siberia is certainly across the Trans-Siberian Railway 082bc9a5eac680e6bd82ae43017ad85b

The Russian train experience

The Trans-Siberian Railway has many routes; however, the main one is that which starts in Moscow and goes east to Vladivostok. The Trans-Siberian splits off into a few other interesting directions as well.In 1891, approval was given to begin construction of this railway across Siberia, linking Moscow to the Pacific. The route was divided into six sections for construction. If you wish sandwich your trip with stays in Moscow and Beining, both of which offer a feast of history and culture.

Lake Baikal

Because it is situated in a pretty remote location in Siberia, Lake Baikal is not frequented by many tourists. Get a window seat as the train loops around the lake – the deepest and oldest lake in the world.

However, there are some places where you could stay and visit the surroundings of the lake.

By far the most popular destination for tourists is the village of Listvyanka. It is located less than 2 hours away from Irkutsk, a city which is served by international airlines.

Lake Baikal Fauna & Flora

Lake Baikal, formed 25 million years ago, provides a haven for 1,200 animal species, 600 types of plants, and the world’s only freshwater seals.

Of these plants and animals, 75 percent are found only in the Lake Baikal region, making its preservation crucial.
