The Trans-Siberian Railway (Russian: Транссибирская магистраль Transsibirskaya Magistral’) is a network of railways connecting Moscow with the Russian Far East and the Sea of Japan. Except the twice per month regularly served connection between Moscow and Pyongyang it is the longest railway in the world. There are branch lines to China through Mongolia and Manchuria, with service continuing to North Korea. The main route of the Trans-Siberian originates in Moscow at Yaroslavsky Vokzal, runs through Yaroslavl, Chelyabinsk, Omsk, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk, Ulan-Ude, Chita and Khabarovsk to Vladivostok via southern Siberia and was built from 1891 to 1916 under the supervision of government ministers of Russia who were personally appointed by the Tsar Alexander III and by his son, Tsar Nicholas II. The additional Chinese Eastern Railway was constructed as the Russo-Chinese part of the Trans-Siberian Railway, connecting Russia with China and providing a shorter route to Vladivostok and it was operated by a Russian staff and administration based in Harbin. The Trans-Siberian Railway is often associated with the main transcontinental Russian line that connects hundreds of large and small cities of the European and Asian parts of Russia. At 9259 kilometres (5753 miles),spanning a record seven time zones and taking eight days to complete the journey, it is the third-longest single continuous service in the world If you find this Channel educational and interesting please subscribe …
