No question about it: there is no better way to see Siberia.
The Golden Eagle was launched in 2007 to much fanfare in Moscow. The UK operators of this train have made a huge push to up the ante with the Imperial Suites, as well as Gold and Silver Class accommodations, all with en-suite bathroom.
The train also has one or two dining cars (depending on the passenger count), a lounge car and many of the amenities you’d expect of a luxury hotel. It plies the famous Trans-Siberian route between Moscow and Vladivostok, as well as special tours of the Silk Road, Russia’s Arctic, Iran and the Caspian region.
Five Imperial Suites are available on all Golden Eagle departures. This type of compartment, the most spacious at 120 square feet, has been a huge success for luxury travelers. It offers a fixed king-sized bed, a dedicated sitting area with dressing table, and lounge area.
All passengers will enjoy the snappy service, presence of a quality control manager and excellent food and beverage service throughout the Golden Eagle. In addition, all guests receive complimentary use of bathrobes, towels, slippers and luxury toiletries.
