First-ever European luxury train to set off Iran journey

The first European private train to enter Iran will make a two-week journey from Budapest to Tehran in October. The first "Golden Eagle-Danube Express" train, which comprises 13 lavishly-decorated wood-paneled 1950s carriages and berths for about 70 guests, will set off from Budapest on October 15.

The two-week trip will cross Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and Turkey, and take passengers through the ancient Iranian cities of Shiraz and Persepolis before reaching the capital Tehran.

With ticket prices of between 10,000 and 23,000 euros ($13,000-31,000) per person, guests will receive "five-star" treatment, its brochure said.

"Iran has been opening up towards the West recently, so we thought the time was right to set this up," Marcella Beke, sales director of the "Nostalgia" branch of the Hungarian state-owned rail operator told AFP.
All the berths on the maiden journey have already been snapped up, mostly by British and Australian passengers, Beke added.

"Nostalgia fans needn't panic, another five trips are scheduled for 2015," she said.
