Customer Tales: Trains, and banyas, and exploring! Oh my! (Part one)

Enjoy part one of this incredible journey taken by two Real Russia customers this past summer along the Trans-Siberian railway, from Moscow, through Irkutsk and Lake Baikal, to Beijing.


Two intrepid Real Russia customers visit the remote Kamchatka by boat, before travelling along the Trans-Siberian railway towards Moscow and Saint Petersburg.

When travelling the Trans-Siberian, friendships are formed and experiences lived. Real Russia customer Bill shares his Trans-Siberian experience!

Ulan-Ude is located in the centre of the vast Siberian steppes, and if you’re planning your Trans adventure across the Trans-Siberian, Trans-Mongolia or Trans-Manchurian routes, Ulan-Ude is the perfect city to spend a day soaking up the Buryat culture.
