Trans-Siberian Railroad The Trans-Siberian railroad is the single longest railroad in the world. Beginning in Moscow, Russia it goes though stop in Ekaterinburg, makes a brisk stop in Novosibirsk, and refuels in Irkutsk. Then it chugs right through Khabarovsk, and finely ends in Vladivostok. The railroad connects Europe to the Pacific Ocean. Nearly 6000 miles of track were laid across the barren landscape of Russia. It takes a week to travel across the country by railroad. Railroad construction began in1891 and ended in 1905. The Trans-Siberian Railroad opened most of Russia to settlers and industrialization. Come travel with me on the Trans-Siberian Railroad.
