Russia...

  Here we offer the opportunity to see Russia by train. In addition to general touring in Moscow we feature the Trans-Siberian rail. The "Rossia" train runs across the vast territory of forests, mountains, hills, valleys, rivers; one landscape changes the other. In some areas there is hardly a living soul within a hundred kilometers. Russia is amazingly huge and diverse.
