Rich Hua stashed this in Travel and Amazing Places
In the late 19th century, some guy thought it would be a good idea to build a train line from Europe across the whole of Asia. This guy was Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, and this project became the Trans-Siberian Railway.
Some 120 years later, itâ€™s still the longest railway in the world, spanning 9,300 kilometers, 87 cities, eight time zones and two continents. If you take a nap starting at the Gulf of Finland and miss your stop, thereâ€™s a chance youâ€™ll wake up at the Sea of Japan.
