Location type: sightHűvösvölgy, Children's Railway

Budapest, HungaryCountry: Hungary

This quaint Hungarian railway system is operated exclusively by children between the ages of 10 and 14. Following in the footsteps of Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union, Hungary first conceived of a railway staffed by children all the way back in 1947. The project was seen as a way of training young men and women important trade skills and as an honorable position to take pride in.
