This is the same rolling epic aboard the Golden Eagle Express as the Trans-Siberian. It too crosses eight time zones and traverses 6,600 miles as it traverses Russia from Moscow to Vladivostok. However, on this very special trip, you will travel (in luxurious comfort of course), through the magical wonderland that is Russia in winter. Also, instead of visiting Kazan, the Golden Eagle calls on Vladimir and Suzdal. The ancient town of Vladimir boasts several of the most beautiful buildings in all of Russia and the picturesque little town of Suzdal is a virtual garden of onion domed churches.
