Onboard the Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express you will experience the biggest country in the world on the world‘s longest railway trip.
The great trip begins in the Russian capital of Moscow. In the evening, the train leaves the Jaroslaw Station and heads for the city of Kasan which about 800 kilometres east of Moscow. After an extensive city sightseeing tour, the Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express continues to Yekaterinburg in the evening. While the passers are sleeping, the train crosses the border between Europe and Asia. On the fourth day of the trip, the train arrives at Novosibirsk, the third largest city of Russia with the world-famous railway museum. This metropolis was founded on the occasion of building a bridge of the Trans-Siberian Railway over the river Ob in the year 1893.
About 31 hours after departure from Novosibirsk, the train stops in Irkutsk. A trip to Lake Baikal starts from there. The next stretch leads towards the Mongolian city of Ulan Bator via the city of Ulan Ude. During the next three days, the Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express travels across the breathtaking landscape of Siberia along the Chinese border. Then, the train has reached its destination: the business metropolis of Vladivostok on the Pacific coast.
Russia is about twice as large as the United States of America. From Kaliningrad on the Baltic Sea to Vladivostok on the Pacific coast the huge country spans more than 11 of the 24 time zones. When the sun rises in western Russia, it is already about to set in the East. Without the Trans-Siberian Railway, the Russians wouldn‘t have been able to develop their own country because of the enormous distances.
The Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express consists of 21 wagons which have been in operation since 2007. For the duration of the trip, the guests can choose any kind of comfort. The noble restaurant offers fantastic meals every day. Country specific specialties of the region where train currently is are served.
