Come along as we take you on one of the world’s greatest railroad journeys.
讓我們帶領你一同前往世上最壯闊的鐵道之旅之一吧。

 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.

  沿著西伯利亞鐵路的各條路線上,有些景色是絕對不可錯過的。旅遊達人表示,從聖彼得堡開始你的行程,並欣賞涅瓦河的景致是個很棒的點子。有許多美麗橋樑橫跨在這條水路之上,在鎮上遊歷彷彿就如同漫步在一間露天博物館。在聖彼得堡可看到許多歷史景點,像是聖以撒大教堂、彼得保羅要塞,以及更多名勝古蹟。

 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.

  搭乘西伯利亞鐵路時有各式車廂任君挑選,從頭等的雙床臥鋪到三等的上下鋪房間皆有。此外,雖然列車上備有餐車,但你或許還是事先買點食物比較好,以防在漫長的鐵路之旅中感到飢腸轆轆。除此之外,你只須好好放鬆、充分享受這趟旅程的各種魔力。
