On 26 April 2007 HRH Prince Michael of Kent, GCVO unveiled the Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express, private train that brings unprecedented luxury to the world’s greatest railway journey.
Our full train comprises of twelve fully en-suite Silver and Gold Class sleeping cars which feature state of the art amenities. 77 sq ft (7 sq metres) Gold Class cabins are well-proportioned and have everything from power showers and underfloor heating to a DVD/CD player, LCD screen and individual air-conditioning. Silver Class cabins are more compact at 60 sq ft (5.5 sq metres) but have similar facilities.
Also available is New Heritage Class. Whilst not en-suite, at 39 sq ft they provide comfortable surroundings in which to enjoy this legendary journey.
A particular delight of the Golden Eagle is one of beautifully appointed restaurant cars, the venue for the chefs to serve carefully-prepared meals using wherever possible only local ingredients. Whether it be the world-renowned ‘Borscht’ or Omul – a fish unique to Lake Baikal – we offer a culinary experience representing the very essence of Russia. The meals are complemented by wines from around the world, as well as – naturally – vodka.
Yet the social heart of the train is the bar car, a great place to relax and settle into the unhurried pace of life on board. Unwind in comfortable surroundings and watch the world go by as you get to know your fellow passengers. Enjoy the sounds of the pianist playing in the evenings; and the bar stays open until the last person leaves.
