Trans-Siberian Railway - Moscow (Chapter)
This is the Moscow chapter from Lonely Planet’s Trans Siberian Railway guidebook.
Moscow is an exhilarating and confounding contrast to the rest of Russia. Soak it up. Examine the art and move to the music; splurge on a ritzy restaurant; stay out till sunrise; get lost in the crowds. Once you get on that train, you may not get to do it again.
