Travelling by train across Russia is the only way to really appreciate the size of the country. The Trans-Siberian railway is one of the most famous lines in the world and a great way to see the country. I started in St. Petersburg, a beautiful European style city and then traveled to Vladimir/Suzdal, suffocated in the smog in Moscow and saw both the bleak and beautiful sides of Siberia.
