The Orava forest railway

In the past, the Orava forest railway was used to collect wood from the forests. Today, it is one of the few preserved narrow-gauge headland railways in the world, and the title of unique technical monument rightfully belongs to it. The starting station is located approximately 6 km from the village of Oravská Lesná (one of the coldest villages in Slovakia), with which it is connected by an asphalt road.

From the starting station Tanečník, where the complete infrastructure of the railway is located, trains pulled by a motor locomotive or a motor train run regularly in the season. They will take visitors to the Sedlo Beskyd summit station, 3 km away, from which there are wonderful panoramic views of the Orava landscape.
