For Russia, the Trans-Siberian Railway is not merely a railroad. The Great Siberian Route has connected west and east of Russia and has become a symbol of the country’s unity. The great construction started at the order of Emperor Alexander III in 1891 and spilled over into years of struggle with permafrost, impenetrable forests and mountains. Through wars and destruction, the great rail has survived up to now.
