The Childrens railway Budapest as featured in the metro

by jonathanbarker

Hello (Ja napot)

Last Friday I read in the UK version of the metro newspaper an article about the Childrens railway in Budapest. I was lucky enough to collect some copies of this article and would like to know about similar railways. I have read about the railways in Kosice and Plovdiv, but have heard these childrens railways were in several locations in the former Eastern bloc.

Unfortunately I was unable to visit the railway in Kosice as it wasn't running in early May.

Thankyou

There is one in Minsk, Belarus I know of.

Earlier, there were Pioneers' Railways working in
- Eger - it's todays Matravasut, no kids are involved in railway operation any more
- Dunaujvaros - demolished
- Tiszakecske - still exists, but was operated by adults until last year, service was suspended earlier this year as the local government found it cheaper to invest in and buy a road train instead of the essential track reconstruction, so the entrepreneur operating the railway stopped the train
- Debrecen - todays Zsuzsivasut (Debrecen-Fatelep - Harmashegyalja), no kids any more

The railroad that i am familiar with in Bulgaria that runs from Plovdiv to Bansko is not a "children's" railroad but a narrow gauge commuter line. AND, its absolutely fantastic traveling through the mountains and small villages. One of the most enjoyable train trips we have ever taken. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

Well, there are about a dozen fantastic narrow gauge railways accessible within a few hours from Budapest. Thanks for the comment though, I'll visit Bulgaria probably this or next year and try to include that train in my itinerary.

Travel Tips for Budapest

Hungarian Flag

by ruubje

This is just a nice picture of the Hungarian flag. Close to the House of Parliament, you can read that the Hungarian Flag has an hole in it, because on October 23, 1956, the revolutionists (Hungarians who revolted against the Sovjet Union) tord out of it the foreign coat of arms that symbolized the power of the Sovjet Union and Communism. Since then, this flag has symbolized the freedom of the Hungarian Nation.

Matthias Church

by codrutz

Hungary's national shrine - Mátyás Templom (Matthias Church). The intricate Gothic structure with elaborately colored roof, originally built in 1269 (substantially modified around 1900), has been the coronation church of Hungarian kings for centuries.

Szent Katalin (Saint Cathrin) church

by 1courage

The Saint Cathrin of Alexandria church, called mostly church of Tabán (because of the district in wich it was located in) is one of the few remnants of this beautiful old quarter, located south from the Castle district, near the Buda side of the Elisabeth bridge, transformed into a park in the 1930's.

In this period the incredible atmosphere of this place was given to the Past by desmantelling the caracteristic barque and classical houses. The original purpose was building a moder quarter on it's place but than came the war and these plans were never realized. Since than the Tabán is a huge green park. There was another fabulous church (serbian ortodox) near this one but it suffered damages in the second world war and was destroyed by the communists not much later.
The church was built on the place of a medieval church destroyed during the turkish era between 1728 and 1736 and was transformed in eclectic style. As a reminiscent of the medieval times you find a XII. century Christ statue in a niche near the main entrance.
Also this church was damaged in the wwii. and lost some beautiful frescos but at least it was restored.after. 2 years ago it recieved a great night illumination.

The British Legation. Budapest

by budapest8


Vice-Consul Carl Lutz arrived in Budapest in early 1942.
As chief of the Swiss Legation's Department of Foreign
Interests in Budapest he was in charge of the interests
of 14 nations at war, among them the United States and
Great Britain. His main offices were situated in the American Legation
at Szabads?g t?r in Pest. He cared among his duties he cared for
300 Americans, 300 English nationals, 2000 Romanians and 3000
Yugoslavs who were stranded in Hungary. When the Germans
occupied Hungary, March 19, 1944 persecution of the Jews grew
very severe. Thousands seeking his protection besieged his offices
every day. As an engaged Christian, Charles Lutz felt, he had to protect
these people. At that time he had already helped 10'000 Jewish children
and young people to emigrate to Palestine. He cared for refugee
Jews who had come to Hungary from many nations and for
Hungarian Jews who were within British and Palestine jurisdiction.
On May 15, when deportations the Auschwitz began, Lutz decided to
place the staff of the Jewish Council for Palestine under his diplomatic
protection an to rename it the "Department of Emigration of the
Swiss Legation". For this stupendous task a special relief organization
had to be created. With the aid of volunteers Lutz increased his staff from
15 to 150.

Day Trips

by where2next

We visited Eger, Balaton, Bratislava, and Godollo and Szentendre. We enjoyed Eger the most fun especially with the wine touring. Lake Balaton was okay though not as fun as going to an ocean beach. Bratislava was a good trip in that we happened to catch a folk dancing exhibition the day we were there. The old town is charming. Godollo is very close to Budapest and has an interesting, small palace, though not so grand. Szentendre which is also close to Budapest, and was okay, though not that extraordinary. Of them I would highly recommend Eger, and if you are traveling to Vienna, then Bratislava would be a nice stop on the way.
