A particular delight of the Golden Eagle are the beautifully appointed restaurant cars, the perfect venue for our chefs to serve carefully prepared meals using, wherever possible, only local ingredients. Whether it is the world-renowned ‘Borscht’ or Omul – a fish unique to Lake Baikal – we offer a culinary experience representing the very essence of Russia. Our meals are complemented by wines from around the world.
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. The bar remains open till the last guest departs.
The 12 new, fully en-suite sleeping cars feature state of the art amenities. Gold Class cabins are wellproportioned and have everything from power showers and under floor heating to a DVD/CD player, LCD screen and individual air-conditioning. Silver Class cabins are more compact and have similar facilities. The new Heritage Class cabins, while not en-suite, provide comfortable surroundings in which to enjoy this legendary journey.
The Golden Eagle features a generous allowance of drinks with lunch & dinner, on board doctor & 24 hr on board cabin attendant, one or two lovingly designed restaurant cars and a spacious bar car. So, as well as enjoying the excellent food and wine served on board, you can sit with a drink while enjoying the good company and conversation of fellow travellers and watch the changing landscapes unfold.
The train’s schedule includes a wide ranging sightseeing program to make the most of the time we have off the train.
