The very name of this unforgettable train is used to intrigue the public and inspired many a film producer prior to World War II. Since the nostalgia just refused to go away, it came as no surprise that after more than 30 years, the Orient Express was finally resurrected in 1976. Once again this luxury hotel on wheels offered its passengers the utmost in comfort and luxury that could come straight out of Arabian Nights. All aboard! Our PANTOFFEL-KINO-DVD trip begins in Istanbul. As shiny domes and slender minarets glide by, this exotic region unfolds before our very eyes. On and on we go, through glittering cities like Edirne, Sofia, Budapest and Vienna. Seeing the elegant, completely restored train is a treat in itself, let alone the 14 steam locomotives that have always been a rarity. Here comes the Belle Epoque once again, rolling on the wheels of the Orient Express!
