Railway heritage of Slovakia in the European context

The exhibition on the occasion of the European Heritage Days and Industrial Days is the output of the international project ‘Rail4V4+V’

Its aim is to emphasize the tourist potential of the railway: through its history and to remind the role that the railway played in the creation of the Central European collective identity. In accordance with the objective of the European Year of Railways and the strategic priorities of the Visegrad Group, the main objective of the project is to raise awareness of the role of railways for the sustainable development of tourism in the V4 countries and Vojvodina (Serbia) through the unique brand Rail4V4+V and the presentation of rail transport in situ and on a digital platform.

The railway is an ecological, comfortable and safe means of transport that will play a key role in the EU’s efforts to achieve climate neutrality by 2050 as part of the new growth strategy – the European Green Deal. Considering the similar situation in the field of railway heritage and tourism in all five partner countries, the main idea of the project is to perceive the region in all its diversity. The cross-border dimension brings citizens of neighboring countries closer together, promotes awareness, socio-economic cohesion and inspires other locations to similar innovations and mutual cooperation in the field of tourism.

The exhibition will bring visitors closer to 25 selected railway heritage sites from the region V4 + Vojvodina in Serbia from different points of view, which significantly contribute to the sustainable development of tourism. This group includes railway lines, tunnels, bridges, viaducts, railway stations, hangars, depots, locomotives, wagons and underground railways.

The exhibition was prepared by the Transport Museum in cooperation with the Faculty of Architecture and Design of the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, the civic association Design Factory and the Rail4V4+V consortium. The project is co-financed by the Bratislava City Foundation and the governments of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad grants from the International Visegrad Fund. The fund’s mission is to promote ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.
