The day the Trans-Siberian Railway construction began – level 3


On May 31, 1891, the construction of the Trans-Siberian Railway officially began.

The construction of the Trans-Siberian Railway was a massive project that required the labor of over 90,000 workers, many of whom worked under harsh conditions.

The railway was completed in 1916, after 25 years of construction, spanning a distance of over 9,000 kilometers and making it the longest railway in the world.

The Trans-Siberian Railway directly connects Moscow with Vladivostok and played a crucial role in the development of Russia’s economy and industry, as it allowed for the transportation of goods and people across the vast country.

Difficult words: harsh (very difficult), span (to go from one side to the other), vast (extremely large).

What impact did the completion of the Trans-Siberian Railway have on the development of Russia's economy and industry, as well as its ability to connect different regions of the country?
