The picture is taken from the webpages of Vodkatrain who operate the tour     The Silk Road has its name from the trade of silk and other things between Asia and Europe, but the routes used were actually many. They all go through Central Asia, through changing landscape, countries and cultures. On my trip...

  When arriving at the Turkish capitol, Ankara, we felt like we had gotten a lot closer to our home country then we had been before on our Silk Road journey. Ankara felt much more European that I had expected, but just like Istanbul it had its districts that had more in common with its...

The Silk Road goes through many countries, but I am surprised by how little the standard of the trains did vary across the borders. The first ones we took were Chinese trains from from Beijing to Urumqi and Urumqi to Almaty. We were staying in soft sleeper, 4 berth compartments that had plenty of storage...

We arrived Teheran early morning, just a few minutes after the train had done its daily 5 am prayer stop. It had been a short ride with just a couple of hours of sleep, so we were all happy when we arrived at our hotel and were told that we could eat breakfast, go swimming...

We traveled from Turkmenabat through the...

After having a pretty tight itinerary the last couple of weeks it was great to arrive in Bukhara where we would have four full days to explore and relax. Bukhara is Central Asia’s holiest city and was the capitol of the Mangit dynasty from the 16th century until the Bolsheviks came to take over. Today...

After having just a couple of hours of sleep in a hotel in the Uzbek capitol Tashkent we jumped on the next train that would take us to what many will consider the main highlight of the Silk Road, namely Samarkand. The city had been captured by Alexander the Great and Ghengis Khan, but the...

Almaty was the capital of Khazakstan until 1998 when it was replaced by Astana, but it is still has the reputation of being the most cosmopolitan city in Central Asia. We were there just for two days when the Khazaks were clelebrating Victory Day making it even more lively. Children were marching and singing songs...

When getting off the train in Urumqi (pronounced Uru-Muchi), the capital of the Xinjang province, we felt that we were no longer in China, but in one of the Central Asian countries. This was muslim China and food, people, buildings etc were much different to what we had seen in Beijing. When asking Chinese people...
