Take A Virtual Ride On The Trans Siberian Railway Courtesy Of Google And The Russian Railways

Moscow-Vladivostok: virtual journey on Google Maps (Image courtesy Google.ru)
By Andrew Liszewski

If you’re looking to kill a few hours online, and by a few I mean enough to cover the almost 10,000km route between Moscow and Vladivostok taken by the Trans Siberian Railway, then head on over to Google.ru where they’ve teamed up with the Russian Railways to create a virtual version of the trip.

Not only do you get a small snippet of Google Maps keeping you constantly updated on your current location, but a series of YouTube videos provides an actual view out of a passenger window as well. And if you find the scenery lacking or the trip a bit boring, you can even choose to listen to a small collection of Russian literature along the way including Tolstoy’s War and Peace, which is sure to liven things up and make the trip fly by!

    That would save you time from actually visiting the place, sitting through the ride and so forth.
