Come along as we take you on one of the world’s greatest railroad journeys.
Along the TSR’s various routes▼, there are some must-see sights. Travel experts say that it’s a great idea to start your trip in St. Petersburg and enjoy the Neva River. The waterway▼ is crossed by many beautiful bridges, and a trip through the town is like walking through an open-air▼ museum. There are lots of historical attractions▼ to be found in the city, such as the St. Isaac’s Cathedral, the Peter and Paul Fortress, and many more.
▼ Isaac’s Cathedral
Next, Yaroslavl, a city over a thousand years old on the Volga River, is worth paying a visit. The city center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site▼. It is filled with centuries-old cathedrals and monasteries. From there, continue on to Lake Baikal, the deepest lake in the world. If you take one of the connected lines along the TSR, it’s even possible to head to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia or Beijing, China.
接著值得一訪之處是坐落於伏爾加河畔、歷史逾千年之久的雅羅斯拉夫爾。該城的市中心被名列為聯合國教科文組織世界文化遺產。這裡充滿了各種有數百年歷史的大教堂和修道院。你可以從當地繼續造訪世上最深的湖泊 ── 貝加爾湖。如果你搭乘西伯利亞鐵路上的一條連接支線，甚至可以前往蒙古的烏蘭巴托或是中國的北京。
▼ Lake Baikal
When you take the TSR, you can choose from different kinds of compartments, from first-class two-bed rooms to third-class bunks. Also, though there are dining cars, you might want to grab some food in advance in case you get hungry on the long train ride. Other than that, just relax and take in the magic of the journey.
