Golden Eagle: Trans-Siberian Express Continued

Owen Hardy

Day 9: Irkutsk
Welcome to Irkutsk, the "Paris of
Siberia." Admire the city's classic
wooden architecture, visit the
Decembrist House museum,
and enjoy a private concert.
Alternatively, attend a cooking
demonstration, or visit a traditional Russian dacha (cottage).
Day 10: On board
Full day on board to enjoy the
train. All meals served in the
restaurant cars.
Day 11: Novosibirsk
Stop in this modern "Soviet"
city and visit one of the world's
largest Opera House, completed in 1944 and whose stage
reportedly was ordered by
Stalin to withstand the weight
of a squadron of tanks. Also visit
Lenin Square and the River Ob,
which flows 3,500 miles from its
source to the Arctic. Freedom of
choice tour options include the
excellent railway museum or
State Art Museum.

Day 12: Yekaterinburg
Tour Yekaterinburg, capital of
the Urals and Romanov execution site. Khrushchev ordered
the destruction of the building
where the crime took place, but
the Russian Orthodox memorial
which replaced it several decades later is a moving tribute
to the doomed Romanovs. We
cross the Europe/Asia divide
shortly after departure.
Day 13: Kazan
Today tour beautiful Kazan,
whose Kremlin Fortress is a
UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Its mosque and onion-domed
cathedral are stunning.
Day 14: Moscow
Mid-morning arrival in Moscow-the end of our 6,600
mile journey. Full day touring
this vibrant city, including Red
Square. Here we see an eclectic
mix of fascinating architecture: from the ornate St. Basil's
Cathedral and grand Kremlin

to the somber and evocative
site of Lenin's tomb. Alternative
Moscow touring options will be
available, such as the Tretyakov
Gallery or the Space Museum.
Transfer to our five-star RitzCarlton (or similar) hotel for
a one-night stay, and enjoy a
farewell dinner.
Day 15: Moscow
Early-morning Kremlin visit if
your journey arrived in Moscow on a Thursday, when the
Kremlin museums are closed.
Transfers to Moscow airport
included.
