Ride the Trans-Siberian railway courtesy of Google!
Through the power of the internets you can travel, virtually, from Moscow to Vladivostok. Listen to music, a Russian novel, or the radio.

The great Trans Siberian Railway, the pride of Russia, goes across two continents, 12 regions and 87 cities. The joint project of Google and the Russian Railways lets you take a trip along the famous route and see Baikal, Khekhtsirsky range, Barguzin mountains, Yenisei river and many other picturesque places of Russia without leaving your house. During the trip, you can enjoy Russian classic literature, brilliant images by photographer Anton Lange and fascinating stories about the most attractive sites on the route.

And you don’t need a visa!
