Escorted Rail Tours to Vladivostok

A major port on the Sea of Japan

A military city situated on the shore of the Sea of Japan, Vladivostok only recently opened to Western visitors. It shows a fascinating blend of both European and Asian cultures. Vladivostok is a key Russian port, but actually belonged to China until relatively recently. Russia only acquired the land after the Treaty of Beijing in 1860, and began to develop the area.

In 1903 the Trans-Siberian Railway reached Vladivostok, which gave a greater connection to Moscow and the rest of Europe, and boosted the local economy. Following the Bolshevik Revolution and subsequent unrest, the city became a major port, and certainly one of great strategic importance. Since that time, Vladivostok has grown into the cultural centre tourists see today, now boasting a range of art galleries, museums, theatres and restaurants.

The idea of travelling aboard a night train holds an almost mysterious allure, conjuring images of moustachioed Hercule Poirot aboard the Orient Express or stepping into the high heels of Jack Lemon and Tony Curtis as they bunk down with Marilyn Monroe in Some Like It Hot.

Through the ages with the Trans-Siberian Express

By
5 October 2017

“I could never have imagined such expanses of unspoilt, natural country without actually seeing it myself, it was like a glimpse into another age, another world, and it made a very strong impression on me. It was strange to be sitting in a train, which is the product of technology — the invention of mankind, and travelling through land so untouched and unspoilt by man and his inventions.”
