Full Steam Ahead with the Golden Eagle Danube Express

Golden Eagle Luxury Trains has recently taken over the operation of the Danube Express and steams ahead with a new programme of special voyages for 2015. These include:

The Balkan Explorer: Journeying from Istanbul to Venice (or vice versa), discover the fascinating history, verdant landscapes and turquoise coastlines of the Balkan nations and their neighbours – destinations never previously explored by a luxury private train. Taking in nine countries over 12 days, venture through the intriguing countries of the former Yugoslavia to witness the lasting influences of recent and ancient conflicts in the cities of Sarajevo, Belgrade and Dubrovnik, among others. The tour is bookended by the magical cities of Istanbul and Venice, but other highlights in-between include: the ancient sites of Plovdiv and Sofia; vibrant Thessaloniki; little-visited Skopje; a scenic drive along the Dalmatian Coast; and a city tour of Ljubljana. Price: from £6,195 all-inclusive, inc. 2 nights in Istanbul, 7 nights on the Golden Eagle Danube Express and 2 nights in Venice. Upgrade to Deluxe from £9,995. Depart 3 or 11 July 2015

Treasures of Eastern Europe: Uncover the poignant past of some of Eastern Europe’s most influential cities on this 12-day voyage between Prague andBudapest. Leaving Prague behind, the train weaves its way north into Germany to begin an exploration of the locations forever associated with World War II. Discover the rich and moving history of Berlin; visit the sites of Gdynia, Gdansk and Kaliningrad to retrace the course of Imperial Germany, Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union; and from Krakow choose to detour to Auschwitz or the Wieliczka Salt Mines. Then head south through Slovakia to its capital city Bratislava to learn about its strategic position behind the Iron Curtain and onward to Vienna for a private concert in the City Palace. The final leg of the route skirts Lake Balaton, where there is an opportunity for a boat cruise, ahead of arrival in Budapest. Price: from £6,195 all-inclusive, inc. 2 nights in Prague, 7 nights on the Golden Eagle Danube Express and 2 nights in Budapest. Upgrade to Deluxe from £9,995. Depart 28 July 2015
