Courtesy of Google maps, you can now check what travel on the Trans Siberian is like:

It comes with youtube videos of scenery, sound effects (rumble of wheels, russian radio) and some classic literature.

I saw a fairly engaging film called Transsiberian a few weeks ago that was set on the train. Concerned drug smuggling and starred Woody Harrelson, although surprisingly enough he wasn't the drug smuggler. I have no idea how "authentic" the whole thing was. Now I guess I have the chance to find out. Thanks, pirkko.

This is just too cool, 'dank' is the term used over here. Thanks, Pirkko.
