The Trans-Siberian Railway, a rail network between the Russian Far East and the Sea of Japan, is one of the longest railways in the world, linking Europe with China. There are endless epic train journeys to embark upon on the network, such as the seven-day Moscow to Vladivostok or Moscow to Beijing, either on the Trans-Mongolian line or the Trans-Manchurian line. One magnificent adventure is the 20-night Trans-Siberian Railway Escorted Journey, offered by House of Travel.
