Our SECRET STOP on the TRANS-SIBERIAN RAILWAY! Kazan, Russia!
The first stop on the Trans-Siberian railway varies depending on which route you take and what you want to see. We decided to take a different approach than most and make Kazan, Russia–the capital of Tartarstan–our first stop. It ended up being one of our favorite cities in Russia! If you’re wandering how to travel the Trans-siberian railway, then definitely add this to your agenda. It’s often overlooked by travelers, but we can’t recommend stopping in Kazan enough. Most people skip it because they just aren’t aware of what to do in Kazan, but a simple day trip is all you need to visit the highlights of this magical city. Kazan’s must see attractions include the Kazan Kremlin, the Tower of Soyembika, and–our personal favorite–the Kul Sharif Mosque. The turqoise color of the mosque differentiates it from any others we’ve seen and the rich history behind it blew us away.
