SK, Orava Forest Railroad – Winter Trip
heading (paragraph): Sights
No. of pictures: 37 pictures

Beautiful train trip on Orava Forest Railroad, that used to be part of the Kysucko-Orava Forest Railroad. However, currently there are underway attempts to restore. You can take a ride there during the winter months. With fewer visitors there operates a motorized trolley, which has a capacity of 11 seats, but if you collect more passengers there is a possibility of converting them also in open or covered wagons pulled by a diesel locomotive. We unfortunately were not so lucky, but a trolley trip was definitely worth it.
