Suggestion for Itinerary for Irkutsk to Moscow over 8 daysHi all, I have asked for help/ideas earlier but now myself and my partner have dates more locked in and timeframe, I thought i would try and get some other peoples ideas/feedback/suggestions on stop offs and things to do and see for the journey from Irkutsk to Moscow.
We are looking at getting a train on October 13 from Irkutsk and then arriving in Moscow on October 22 or 23, so we have some time to fill in the middle and am wondering if anyone could suggest good places to stop. All i know is i would like to stop in Kazan for a couple of days as it looks pretty nice!
Can anyone suggest a route or places to go? originally was going to go Irkutsk - Tomsk - Kazan - Moscow but after hearing from other people there may be some better options, maybe even squeeze in two places before Kazan? Or is that trying to cram too much?
We are interested in anything really, I am a photographer so anything picturesque would be good! adventures and local experiences are always of high interest to us, museums are ok but i dont want to be going to a city to look at one museum (if that makes sense).
I have heard good things about Tomsk, Omsk, Tobolsk....Anyone have any other suggestions or ideas for a route for us?
Any help would be great :)
