MIR Corporation Adds Ukraine Travel to Its Luxury Train Journeys

SEATTLE, WA –MIR Corporation is excited to announce the addition of Ukraine travel to its stable of luxury train trips aboard the Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express. The new journey by private train begins with a tour to Russia, exploring Moscow and St. Petersburg, then takes travelers through the capitals of Belarus and Moldova, stopping at gilded churches and powerful fortresses, tasting local wines and sampling local delicacies. The luxury train then glides onto the sunny Crimean Peninsula, where the warm Mediterranean climate created “the playground of the czars” on the shores of the Black Sea before travelers visit Kiev, Ukraine’s busy capital city.

Three styles of accommodation are available on trips aboard the Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express luxury train: New Heritage, Gold Class and Silver Class. Gold and Silver each offer private en suite facilities, with upper/lower berth configuration. New Heritage Class cabins feature a wash basin, wardrobe, central air conditioning and shared facilities.
