"Golden Eagle" will Cross All Russia
September 23, 2013 16:33


A new tourist train "Golden Eagle" headed for Vladivostok.

The presentation of the luxury class train "Golden Eagle" took place at the Kazansky railway station. The luxury train goes from Moscow to Vladivostok by the Trans-Siberian Railway several times a year. It crosses eight time zones and travels 10,600 kilometers during 15 days.

A tour in a double compartment of "silver" class costs $ 15,495 per person, in the compartment of "golden" class - $ 18,995, in the compartment of "imperial" class - $ 60,000 for the whole compartment. Traveling across Russia is in high demand among foreigners; the seats in this expensive express are almost never empty.

The citizens of Russia have also appeared among the passengers of the "Golden Eagle" recently, but so far they are in a minority. A "silver" compartment has a shower with a toilet, and a "golden" one on top of everything else has a plasma TV, air conditioning and a heated floor. There are altogether five compartments in the coach.

On the way you can visit the hairdresser and the massage therapist, work out in the gym, receive spa- treatments and undergo an examination by the doctor.

The train picks up the retro-train with a red star on its front in Moscow. The clouds of black smoke, the engine driver in a cap with a badge, a whistle from the man on duty on the platform - all these details delight customers of the "Grand Hotel on Wheels".

On its way the train makes stops in the most interesting places. The tourists visit the Kul Sharif mosque in Kazan, enjoy ballet in Novosibirsk, taste smoked Baikal omul, walk among the wooden houses decorated with intricate carvings in Irkutsk.

Then they go through Mongolia, arrive in Khabarovsk, cross the Amur River and head for the destination point - Vladivostok, where they visit an unusual museum - the combat submarine.

The travelers return from Vladivostok to Moscow by plane, but the plane tickets are not included in the tour price.
