"This is a short film on the centenary Trans-Siberian Railway. We embarked August 2017 expecting to live a romantic long train journey, but it wasn't only that: we enjoyed two weeks of absorbing great experiences, both on the train and in the cities we visited.

"We departed from Moscow and stopped in Ekaterinburg, Irkutsk, Baikal Lake and Ulan-Ude, the formerly closed city in which we took the Trans-Mongolian route to UlaanBaatar to visit the spectacular Mongolian countryside. Over 100 years after it was completed, the Trans-Siberian still keeps the tranquility and nostalgia of an historical ride."
