A virtual trip

The future of travel?

Well maybe this is the alternative to filling the atmosphere with C02 emissions.

You can now take a virtual tour of the Trans Siberian railway courtesy of Google Maps and Russian railways.

During the seven minute sequence you can

see Baikal, Khekhtsirsky range, Barguzin mountains, Yenisei river and many other picturesque places of Russia without leaving your house. During the trip, you can enjoy Russian classic literature, brilliant images and fascinating stories about the most attractive sites on the route.
