Exhibition: the Košice-Bohumín Railway
Till 5th December – Žilina
The exhibition on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the opening of the railway will present the construction, development and documents related to its history. The railway, originally running through both Austrian and Hungarian territory, was built to improve the transport of agricultural products and raw materials, especially in the iron industry. However, it had a significant impact on the development of towns and villages in northern and eastern Slovakia. It was the only line in Upper Hungary running in an east-west direction, it was always privately owned (until 1942) and was the longest railway line in Slovakia. The exhibition consists of pictorial sources supplemented by three-dimensional exhibits and will be located in the Tinker’s Pavilion in the grounds of Budatín Castle.
