Trans-Russian Timetable

The ‘Trans-Russian’ is the oldest section of the Trans-Siberian railway, covering 9289km between Moscow in European Russia and Vladivostok in Russia’s Far East.

Construction began on May 31st 1891 when the foundation stone of the railway was laid by Tsarevich Nicholas II and was completed when construction of the Khabarovsk Bridge spanning the Amur River was finished in 1916; with trains beginning to run from October of that year.

The ‘Trans-Russian’ passes through the heart of Siberia, passing many of Russia’s major cities, such as PermYekaterinburgNovosibirsk and Irkutsk; while also passing such natural wonders as the Ural Mountains, Lake Baikal (the world’s largest freshwater lake) and the Ob River (the seventh longest river in the world).
