Event description
Have you ever travelled so far?
Guess that this idea has already come to your mind, but you considered it to be too unreal to carry out…... so finally why not to make the craziest dream come true? The craziest dream. TransSiberian Dream.
This year we offer you a unique chance to explore real Russia making your way with us to Siberia from Moscow. What is Russia? Moscow, St. Petersburg? Oh no, much more than that. Russia is a country with many different regions, nationalities, with 9 time zones etc. On the Transsiberian you'll discover many of its faces getting to know traditions and cultural characteristics of many regions. Spending several days in historically rich and extremely beautiful Moscow you’ll proceed to the biggest cities on your way to the east. Seeing a couple of them at a glance and crossing the border between Europe and Asia you’ll be approaching Baikal with each following day. Getting deeper and deeper into the beauty of an untouched nature of legendary Siberia, you’ll finally reach the Baikal Lake – the biggest still water lake in the world, one of the biggest wild preserves of Russia, the most beautiful place in the world. The road may seem hard, and yes, it will be full of surprises and adventures. Unforgettable nights and parties with our Dream Team will help you to survive en route. Frightening? Unreal? No. Luring? Amazing? Exciting? Unforgettable? Great? Oh, yes! Believe us, believe all your predecessors!

Transsiberian Dream already took place 4 times, So in this year it will be Anniversary Transsiberian Dream vol.5! And it’s gonna be greater than ever! Are you gonna lose such a chance to become an explorer of Russia?!

Our SU will finish in Irkutsk... Although, who said that it would be the end of YOUR trip? You can continue your way to the Far East, Kazakhstan, Mongolia or even China! Once you’ve got that far, you shouldn’t stop!
If you are firm, motivated and strong enough to experience Mother Russia you are kindly welcome to take part in probably the best Traveling Summer University in 2013!

Places visited
Moscow
One of The largest cities in Europe. The capital of Russia since 1918
Nowadays being not a “typical” Russian city but a glorious metropolis of over 16 million inhabitants, Moscow reminds a small country inside of the city. Life never stops there, MOSCOW NEVER SLEEPS! Come and feel the friendly atmosphere of squares, parks and museums, feel the famous night life of the sleepless city! You will know why Red square is Red and be able to get back to the soviet times!
Kazan
Kazan is the capital city of the Republic of Tatarstan, Russia. Kazan lies at the confluence of the Volga and Kazanka Rivers in European Russia. In April 2009, the Russian Patent Office granted Kazan the right to brand itself as the «Third Capital» of Russia. The Kazan Kremlin is a World Heritage Site.
Ekaterinburg
This city is the fourth largest city and a major city in the central part of Russia. Considering its location on the eastern side of Ural Mountains Ekaterinburg is regarded as an official gate from Europe to Asia. Like a two-headed eagle on the Russian coat of arms whose left head is looking at Europe while the right one is looking at Asia, Ekaterinburg has always been notable for outstanding historical events that occurred there: for example, the last Russian Emperor was killed there.
Irkutsk
One of the largest cities in Siberia. Irkutsk connects the two eras- town with carved wooden traditional Russian houses and modern administrative center. Beautiful architectural feature and real spirit of siberian people.
Baikal Lake
Lake Baikal is the world’s oldest and deepest lake at 30 million years old and with an average depth of 744.4 metres; it is the second most voluminous lake, after the Caspian Sea. Baikal, which is sometimes called “Blue Eye of Siberia” or “Pearl of Siberia”, is one of the cleanest surface water reservoirs and you can drink water right from the lake. Located in the south of the Russian region of Siberia, it is the most voluminous freshwater lake in the world.
