As Winston Churchill once infamously said, "Russia is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma". This train tour is the only reliable way to get the the most of the enigma, to see vast lands accessible by the unique Baikal–Amur Mainline only. BAM traverses Eastern Siberia and incredibly beautiful and desolate Far East. Due to the severe terrain, weather, length and cost BAM had been described as "the construction project of the century".
