The first railway

The first railway

Threw Dunjkovec and Macinec passes the first Croatian railway built in 1857th. Construction began between Pragersko in Slovenia and Nagykanizsa in Hungary, with the extension towards Budapest. The goal was to join Budapest with the existing rail Vienna – Trieste, via Croatia and Slovenia. That was the first railway lined threw Croatian soil – rather, Međimurje county.
The new railway line connected Kotoriba at the north of Međimurje with Donji Kraljevec and Čakovec towards south. Even today, along the first railway in Croatia we have railway stations in Dunjkovec i Macinec.
