Trans-Siberian Railway - Yekaterinburg to Krasnoyarsk (Chapter)
This is the Yekaterinburg to Krasnoyarsk chapter from Lonely Planet’s Trans Siberian Railway guidebook.
This leg of the journey isn’t the most visually exciting, with little more to see than endless miles of semi-taiga and farmland. Perhaps the best way to make the journey, then, is on a series of night trains – you won’t miss much in the way of scenery and you’ll save on hotels.
