MIR Announces Train Travel Discount on the Trans-Siberian Railroad

SEATTLE, WA — Seattle-based tour operator MIR Corporation is announcing a special train travel discount on tours aboard the Tsar’s Gold private train in 2010, the first time they have offered a discount on tours aboard this Trans-Siberian Railroad train.

The Tsar’s Gold train is a comfortable, though not luxurious, private train that features a spectrum of five different cabin styles, some en-suite and some not. Choose your style of Trans-Siberian Railroad travel – the most deluxe option aboard the Tsar’s Gold is Bolshoi Platinum Class, and the best value is Standard Plus Class.

The Trans-Siberian Railroad is a legendary route spanning the width of Russia and encompassing many distinct cultures and landscapes. The route truly shows the cultural diversity of Russia and gives intrepid travelers the opportunity to see a vast swath of the globe pass by in comfort.

Five separate 2010 journeys on the Tsar’s Gold follow the tracks of the famous Trans-Siberian Railroad between Moscow and Beijing:
Westbound, from Beijing to Moscow:

  • May 24-June 7
  • July 19-August 2
  • September 13-27

Eastbound, from Moscow to Beijing

  • June 13-28
  • July 11-26

Each journey begins or ends with a tour to Russia, and stops along the way include UlaanBaatar, Mongolia and Siberia’s UNESCO-listed Lake Baikal. Lake Baikal travel has become more and more popular in recent years as travelers hear about the amazing lake, the deepest and oldest on earth, which holds 20% of the world’s unfrozen fresh water.
