Tsaren Gold

Your comfortable home during an unforgettable journey.

Choose from 6 different cabin types.

The Tsaren Gold is a private train that accommodates 200 passengers. Between Moscow and the Chinese-Mongolian border in Erlian (and vice versa) your Private Train offers seven different compartment categories ranging from the the budget-minded category I with shared facilities to the best possible comfort available on the Transsiberian with private facilities: category V. No matter which compartment type you choose, all of them are about twice as large as typical European sleeping car compartments. Choose from 6 different cabin types, according to your personal requirements, and dine in our beautiful restaurant waggons. Enjoy fine cuisine and drinks. The restaurant car also serves as a bar waggon, so before and after meals you can enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and have a nice conversation with fellow travellers as you collect unique impressions.
