What is the Trans-Siberian Railroad? The main route, the Trans-Siberian, runs from Moscow to Vladivostok via southern Siberia and was built between 1891 and 1916. It is often associated with the main Russian train that connects these two cities. The second primary route is the Trans-Mongolian, which coincides with the Trans-Siberian as far as Ulan Ude on Lake Baikal's eastern shore. The Trans-Mongolian provides the most exciting travel adventures connecting 3 wonderful countries Mongolia, China and Russia. From Ulan-Ude, Siberia the Trans-Mongolian heads south to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia before making its way southeast to Beijing, China.
The Trans-Mongolian line follows the same route as the Trans-Siberian between Moscow and Ulan Ude, and then follows this route to Mongolia and China:
The railway features many remarkable bridges, the longest being Khabarovsk Bridge (1916).
