  • Railway museum, targeted mostly at families with kids. Some of the stuff is deteriorated, while some works great (a small garden train you can ride across the whole place, for example). Very small amount of written information in English, but the staff speaks English. The best thing there, the ability to drive your own train locomotive, is available only on weekends.
  • Recommended museum for the turists.
  • Interesting exhibition.
  • Great fun especially for families with children. There is a playground, it can be interesting to go through the minivasutazni, and the old trains. All absolute affordable prices. It is recommended to place.
