Day trip on the Children's RailwayJanuary 2 in Hungary ⋅ ⛅ -1 °C
Mini adventure today taking the Children's Railway (Gyermekvasút) which was built after World War II, and originally called Pioneer's Railway. It is run by children under the supervision of adult railway workers. Children do various types of jobs, from selling tickets to traffic management.
Getting to the railway involved 2 metro lines and a bus into the hills and was then followed by a short hike through the forest, a climb to a lookout tower, an old chair lift down the hill (passing over lovely old homes and gardens still covered in ice from the morning frost) , a bus back to the city and finally a short walk home!Read more
