A peek inside the luxurious steam-powered trains you can take from Hungary to Iran or across Siberia.
Imagine that one night you’re in Irktusk, “the Paris of Siberia,” sipping champagne like an exiled Decembrist. Go to sleep and wake up by Mongolia’s Lake Baikal, the deepest lake in the world, known for its natural beauty, then stop of in Ulaan Baatar to see the winter residences of the last Mongolian emperor. A few days later you’ve reached Vladivostok, along the Sea of Japan. How did you get here? You took the train, the Golden Eagle Luxury train, to be precise, crossing Siberia from the comfort of a world-class cabin, complete with a personal attendant. Trains feature Russian lessons and vodka tastings.
If traveling across Siberia isn’t a dream of yours, perhaps you’d be interested in Golden Eagle’s tour from Budapest to Iran, with stops in Tabriz, Persepolis, and Isfahan.
