 GoldEagEastbmap

- Kazan - Yekaterinburg - Novosibirsk - Irkutsk - Lake Baikal - Ulan Ude - Ulaan Baatar (Mongolia) - Vladivostok (15 days)

Programm

Day 1, MOSCOW, RUSSIA

Arrive at Moscow airport, where you are met and transferred to the luxurious five-star Marriott Royal Aurora hotel (or similar) located in the heart of this vibrant city for a one-night stay.  We enjoy a welcome reception dinner at our hotel, whilst you meet your fellow travellers and anticipate the epic 15 day voyage that lies ahead.

 

Day 2, MOSCOW - FREEDOM OF CHOICE TOURING

Our morning city tour of Moscow principally takes us to Red Square, an iconic symbol of Russia’s former military and political might.  Here we see an eclectic mix of fascinating architecture, such as the ornate St Basil’s Cathedral with its magnificent onion-domed spires, the grandeur of The Kremlin and the sombre and evocative site of Lenin’s tomb. With our Freedom of Choice touring options you may instead wish to visit, for example, the Tretyakov Gallery or travel out of the city centre to Sergiev Posad, home to one of the most beautiful monasteries in Russia and the historical and spiritual centre of the Russian Orthodox Church. Early afternoon sees us boarding the luxurious Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express.  After settling into our modern, stylish cabins, we enjoy dinner in one of the beautifully designed restaurant cars as our rail adventure eastwards to Vladivostok begins.

 

Day 3, KAZAN

We arrive at the picturesque and historic city of Kazan by mid-morning.  Situated on the River Volga, Kazan is the capital of Tatarstan.  Here we have the opportunity to see for ourselves its rich tapestry of history and culture.  One of the highlights of this city tour is our exploration of the Kremlin Fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Within the walls of this ancient citadel we will explore its stunning mosque and onion-domed cathedral. After enjoying a relaxing dinner on the Golden Eagle, you may wish to retire to our welcoming bar car where you can enjoy drinks with new friends whilst listening to our resident pianist.

 

Day 4, YEKATERINBURG

We cross the Europe/Asia divide before arriving in the historic city of Yekaterinburg. Founded in 1723 by Peter the Great, the third largest Russian city is also the capital of the Urals.  The cultural and architectural influences of European and Asian civilisations come together in this fascinating and cosmopolitan landscape.  Our city tour takes us to the poignant site where the Romanov, Nicholas II of Russia was executed with his family by the Bolsheviks in 1918.   Now a church dedicated to their memory, this site provides us with a powerful insight into the turmoil of the Russian Revolution.

 

Day 5, NOVOSIBIRSK

A modern ‘Soviet’ city, we experience the life and character of Novosibirsk’s rich culture where the arts, science and literature predominate.  Our city tour takes us to the Opera House.  An architectural marvel, it houses two permanent ballet and opera companies and is the largest opera house in the world.  In front of the Opera House, we visit an imposing statue of Lenin – a marvellous opportunity to have your photograph taken with this iconic political leader.  

 

Day 6, ONBOARD

A day to unwind and reflect on the many sights and sounds we have experienced on our journey so far.  Chat to your fellow passengers, perhaps learn a few words of Russian or simply enjoy the ever changing landscape outside your window as it unfolds.

 

Day 7, IRKUTSK

We arrive in Irkutsk, the ‘Paris of Siberia’, and our visit today takes in the most significant sites and museums in this fascinating city, including an exploration of the classic wooden architecture that has given many of this region’s buildings such a distinctive and unique appearance. Next, we visit the Decembrist House museum which is dedicated to the memory of the exiled aristocrats who were forced to flee to this remote outpost after the failed revolution of 1825.  Here we enjoy a private concert before returning to our waiting train for dinner.

 

Day 8, LAKE BAIKAL

Few natural sights can surpass the beauty and grandeur of Lake Baikal and is a major highlight on our Trans-Siberian journey. For five hours we wind our way through tunnels along cliff hugging tracks above the lake with a vista of snow capped peaks along the far shore forming a picture-perfect backdrop.  Lake Baikal is the deepest lake in the world and holds 20% of the world’s freshwater.  Also known as the ‘Pearl of Siberia’ it is home to a unique breed of freshwater seal and over fifty species of fish including omul which we will be serving in the dining car for some of our meals. Weather permitting, we stop in an extremely picturesque location by the lake for photgraphic opportunities and for the brave hearted, there is even time for a refreshing swim in the crystal clear waters. Travelling onwards to the end of the Baikal branch line, we leave the train and travel by boat across the lake to Listvyanka, a small Baikal settlement nestling at the base of the surrounding hills and include a visit to the local museum. As part of our Freedom of Choice excursion programme we will offer hiking opportunities that provides some spectacular and panoramic hillside views of the lake below. We then enjoy a delicious barbecue, including freshly smoked omul, prepared by our own chefs on the banks of the Angara River to complete a memorable day.   

 

Day 9, ULAN UDE

This morning we arrive in Ulan Ude, capital of the Buryat Republic.  The ethnic and cultural diversity of this area offers a unique insight into its heritage.  As we tour the area you will notice the different faces and dress styles of these welcoming people.  During our exploration of the Old Believers Village we have the opportunity to learn about the culture and history of these religious people as we are treated to a traditional meal and enjoy a concert featuring local dancers and musicians.

 

Day 10, ULAAN BAATAR, MONGOLIA

Our Trans-Siberian adventure takes us into Mongolia and a visit to its capital Ulaan Baatar. Mongolia, once the very centre of an enormous empire led by Genghis Khan, is a country of beautiful landscapes, nomadic people and rich in culture and history. Mongolia is famous for its endless green Steppes, grazing livestock and white, nomadic Gers (Yurts) dotted all across the countryside. Passing the central monument to Genghis Khan in Sukhebaatar Square we visit the National Museum where we explore the country's intriguing history. We will also visit Gorkhi-Terelj National Park and enjoy the beautiful scenery of wild Mongolia, having the opportunity to visit a traditional Ger and meet a nomadic family or try our hand at horse-riding, an intrinsic part of Mongolian life. Alternatively guests can remain in Ulaan Baatar to explore more of the city and have some free time for shopping. 

 

Day 11, ONBOARD

Enjoy a more leisurely pace today as we travel through the beautiful landscape of the Russian Far East.  You may like to attend one of the interesting lectures or Russian language lessons.

 

Day 12, ONBOARD

It is the perfect opportunity to practice your Russian or simply relax as our journey today follows the Shilka and Amur rivers, close to the Chinese border.  Enjoy Russia at its most dramatic and remote, as the Golden Eagle eats up the miles on our way to Vladivostok.

 

Day 13, ONBOARD

Passing directly north of Seoul, Darwin and Osaka, we spend our last full day on board the Golden Eagle today as the most easterly point of our mammoth journey is reached passing through Khabarovsk, where we cross the River Amur.  Tonight, we enjoy our final dinner onboard our private train that has been our home for the last twelve days as we approach our final destination on this unforgettable journey.

 

Day 14, VLADIVOSTOK

After travelling through 8 time zones and covering an amazing 6,600 miles (10,600km) along this epic route to the end of the Trans-Siberian line, the Golden Eagle pulls into Vladivostok, a military port located on the western shores of the Sea of Japan. Vladivostok (literally translated as ‘Ruler of the East’) offers visitors an exciting opportunity to explore its principal military attractions including a tour of a restored submarine before we transfer to the four-star Hyundai Hotel.  The final evening is spent saying our goodbyes to our fellow travelling companions and friends at the Farewell Dinner.

 

Day 15, VLADIVOSTOK

Following breakfast, you will be transferred to Vladivostok airport to begin your journey home.
