Railway Adventures

Greatest adventures are by train

Train travel was the first really comfortable way to cover big distances by land. Although its better days are behind us, mostly because airplanes now connect even the most remote places on hearth, train travel is yet to deliver its swan song. The pleasure to “steam” across the landscape, cutting through villages and towns, meeting the locals and arriving right in the heart of the city is something not possible when travelling by plane

What we, at Iron Curtain Tours, propose is to revive train journeys as a form of immersive tourism. From a stroll around Belarus or Ukraine to the “classic” Trans-Siberian.

Resisting the hardest of times

Brutal Tours and Iron Curtain Tours joined efforts, and only the Lord knows what else, to bring you a unique railway tour across a country that was ravaged by wars and nuclear disaster and survived. We will take you as close as you’ll ever be to the Great Patriotic War heroes, and, on the go, to the other Chernobyl Exclusion zone: Pripyatsky National Park in Belarus. Lame cake, we know. This is why we have a cherry to put on top of it: A Soviet-style military parade in Minsk for Victory Day.

Through forests and marshes

The historic region of Polesie stretches along the Belarus-Ukraine border, all the way from Poland to Russia.
This tour starts and finishes in Minsk, to allow the usage of the visa-free program for those entering and exiting via Minsk international airport, and takes you on 1300Km railway journey through Brest, Pinsk and Gomel.
This tour will allow you to get in touch with the most unique landscapes of Belarus – the marshes. And do this by languidly steaming through it on a train.
