Tsar's Gold Private Train

Tsar’s Gold private train has been exclusively designed for tourist travel on the Trans-Mongolian railway. This is not a commuter train, rather a luxurious transportation option for holiday-makers.

There are restaurant carriages on this train which are also used for lectures and events. You are also welcome to come to a restaurant during your spare time to meet your friends, have a chat or play games. Unfortunately, the train does not have a lounge or a bar. The group guides will advise the clients which restaurant car is available. There is also doctor service onboard.
