Is the trans–siberian railway good for a vacation?
>>
>>2249335
Depends, are you trans?
>>
It's not a vacation, more of a journey.
>>
Only if you're MTF
>>
>>2249335
your experience might depend on your nationality
>>
It was great 20 years ago but sucks now.
>>
>>2249371
Why? I'm trans. I've always dreamed of going on the trans siberia..

i know some people who took it from beijing to london, they said it wasn't great. all depends where you decide to get off and what time of year it is. many can't hack being on a train non-stop.
>>
>>2249335
god I hate slavs so much I wish these alcoholic monkeys would wipe each other off the map already without dragging everybody else into it like they did in ww1. throw the whole race away.

Obviously getting off at multiple stops on the way is the better way to experience the country but staying on a train for more than 3 days is an experience by itself, especially considering that a day on the Trans-Siberian is either 23 or 25 hours long.

How long of a ride is that?
>>
>>2252740
At least 10 days if you're lucky with train connections and literally just go from train to train.
The minimum number of transfers for that route is 2 but more realistically you'll change trains 3 or 4 times.
>>
Yes
>>
>>2250855
i think they got off in mongolia, lake baikal and moscow, maybe somewhere else. iirc it was the getting back on the train aspect which became a pain, knowing you were going to overnight on a train again.
i agree with you that living on a train for several days would in itself be an experience which would be ok to do once to see how it is.

I wouldn't bother, russia is mostly a shithole outside of 2 or 3 major cities.

spent a year living there for work. If you aren't in Moscow or St. Petersburg, it's an absolute dump.

And I spend 6 months travelling around Russia during the FIFA cup. I went to Volgograd, Vladivostok, Voronezh, Rostov, Pskov and a bunch of other cities which I cant remember the names of. All were fine, clean, safe and many were full of kino like pic related. You're either larping or went to some shitty village. The smaller Russian cities are fine.
>>
>>2253339
Forgot pic related. Now that I remember it I was also in Ekaterinburg and the capital of Tartarstan.
>>

>>2253341
Shame you missed Norilsk, for a more "authentic" russian experience
>>
>>2253362
You need a special permit to go there as it used to be a closed city.
>>
>>2249335
Yes, if you stop and spend time at some places along the way. I rode the railway from Vladivostok to Moscow without stopping (lived in Russia for a year and wanted to do the entire railway trip but didn't have enough time to do it with stops) and while I don't regret it, I wouldn't recommend that anyone do it like I did. It gets boring and for every beautiful view of the Siberian countryside you also get hours going through a forest with nothing but a blur of birch trees in front of you. Some of the railway stations are quite beautiful and the train will stop for long enough for you to look around but it isn't long enough to do much.

I'm going one day but prob when I'm old and to die

make sure you bring lots of vodka to share, 100% of russians drink until they piss themselves on a daily basis
>>

Why was it closed?

mhmm we'll need a real /trv/ man to explore this frontier

What are those grey stringy things sitting in the гpeчихa?

>>2255250
The USSR made any city that was deemed to be of strategic importance not accessible without a special permit.
Russia obviously kept this tradition to some extent.

>Access to Norilsk is restricted for foreign citizens, who require special permission to visit the city.
My guess is that you've never been there. I read the Wikipedia on it and it seems to be a city of extremes. Most northernmost major city in the world, one of the coldest cities in the world, higher local wage than average, life expectancy 10 years shorter than Russian average,
>>
>>2255362
Sounds like they are trying to hide the embarrassing shit from the tourists. China does this too
>>
>>2255357
Looks like some gross pickled fish, maybe herring.
>>
>>2255550
not herring, maybe sprats
>>
Russia is a shithole and there's no reason to vacation there unless you're interested in picking up the women who are desperate for foreigners.

Even the ugliest guys in the West mog the average Russian guy.
>>
What's the best time of the year to do the whole Trans-Siberian?

Also, is Russia open to tourists (due to war)?

I wish people would stop calling Russians Slavs. That's such an oversimplification. They're mixed people with lots of Asian admixture.
>>
>>2259409
But it's more about how they act, not their genetics.
