Republics of the Silk Road

A dazzling exploration of the lands where civilisation began, and the great religious and political ideologies were born. Journeying aboard the Golden Eagle, we will travel through the magnificent "Five Stans" - a fascinating patchwork of countries, stitched together by a shared history of Sovietisation, yet fiercely independent in identity. From the magnificent mosques and bustling bazaars of Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan to the breath-taking verdant expanse and ethereally tranquil landscapes of Tajikistan and Kazakhstan, this incredible 14-day adventure is your invitation to one of the world's greatest train journeys.
