Overlooking the confluence of the Amur and Ussuri Rivers, Khabarovsk is the second largest city in the Russian Far East, approaching 600.000 residents and growing. Optional amendend to the program might include the stop in Khabarovsk for those who would like to take a break.
We arrive in the morning and will leave in the evening. There is a fantastic cluster of top notch museums along Shevchenko Street, just behind the tall blue-domed Church of Theotokos on Komsomolskaya Square towards the river and stadium. Embark on the final leg of your epic journey, train to Vladivostok runs for modest 11 hours.
Mainly, it is a technical stop, aimed to allow travellers to feel the ground after long train journey. A brief 3 hours city tour is just enough to have a look around and get reary for the next departure to Vladivostok at 9:50 PM.
