When I took the Transmongolian Railway this summer, I got to see a lot of very special sights. One of the many cool sights was that we on rail went from Europe and long into Siberia (that is the Asian part of Russia), and beyond. The meeting place of this is Ekaterinburg (many ways of writing that), and was one of the longer scheduled stops on the way. We got to leave the train, stretch our legs , and look around. Here are a few images from the place.
The station itself was quite impressive in old fashioned style.
And a lot of people preparing for boarding the train for the onwards journey.
