From one continent to another

The Trans-Siberian is a network of railways that connect Europe to Asia through Siberia and span over a third of the globe. These world famous routes can nowadays be extended on to St. Petersburg, Helsinki or even down into Belarus, Ukraine, the Baltic states and onto Europe in the west, or, to Hong Kong, Shanghai, Vietnam, Tibet and beyond in the east. The Trans-Siberian really is “travel without limits”.
