Sleeping in luxury Tsarist train in Bialowieza with bisons

I like atypical initiatives. During my stay in Poland I wanted to see bisons. Those poor creatures were hunted to extinction in the wild in the early 20th century. So I took back in time... Almost.
I decided to sleep in a train. 20th century train. I took a trip to one of the nature reserves without actually leaving my apartment...
But don't think it was old, dingy, socrealist hotel.
Actually, Tsarist Apartments are luxury chambers, which remind Tsar Nicholas II wagons ( he traveled to Bialowieza for hunts). The breakfast is included. The atmosphere- nostalgic and romantic. And the price is around 80 euros for 2 people. You can also enter Bania -Russian sauna there.
I recommend this vintage place especially to those, who like original places.

Me too, also because I remember the small Polish bison from when I was there. They look just like American bison, but smaller and therefore cute.
