Foreword

The spirit of the explorer is captured in the Trans Siberian Railway, traversing the largest country in the world and delving into a wealth of culture, monuments and spectacular environments. There is no greater railway journey on the face of the Earth, and those participants that managed to capture some of the excitement and wonder of this great landmark were selected as our winners. 

Many amazing projects were submitted, and our jury panel evaluated each project on its versatility and adaptability. We believe that this legendary route needs to be celebrated accordingly, with a series of rest stops that have the potential to become as well-known as the railway itself.
