    This trip includes stops in five major cities along the Trans-Siberian Railroad. Travelers start in Moscow or Vladivostok and make stops in Yekaterinburg, Novosibirsk and Irkutsk cities. During the trip, you will experience 5 major geographical and cultural parts of Russia: European Russia, Ural Mountains, Western Siberia, Eastern Siberia, and the Russian Far East. We recommend to stay at least 1 night in each city. Check the Diamond Fund in Moscow, Moscow Circus, Bolshoi Theater, Tretyakov Gallery, take a day tour into the country to see Russias Golden Ring towns. In Vladivostok, make sure to visit the Golden Horn Bay to see the Pacific Fleet of Russia or take a day trip to see Siberian Tiger refuge. Enjoy Irkutsk city, one of the oldest in Eastern Siberia with great history and cultural presence. And of course, the Lake Baikal!!! Yekaterinburg city (former Sverdlovsk) is one of the largest cities in Russia. To the travel community it is mainly known for Romanov family execution, birth and work place of Boris Yeltsin, mineral museums, and the place where Europe and Asia meet. Novosibirsk city is the 3rd largest city in modern Russia. It is a great stop for folks interested in science, music, and archeology. The city stands on the banks of the Ob River. To the south of the city lie majestic Altai Mountains also known for sensational discoveries such as Ice (Scythian) Princess and an unknown human species, the "X-woman" in Denisova Cave
