Well, first i have to say that prices are high for what they offer( 35 lei for adults 20 lei for children between 4 and 14 years old ). You pay for the tickets in the train. The passenger cars are opened, with no windows....More

A great way to have you day start. It's an escape for all the kids, little and big, it's a two hour trip definitely worth taking. The views war great, we had a blast and our three years old daughter loved it

The train trip was very nice and confortable, although short. You can admire the scenery and also get some info from the guides. Not to miss if you are a railroad fan!

The crew was quite fine, always with a nice story for each part of the trip, kids will love it. The steam engine (dolly) is in a good condition and the mechanic very friendly. Aim for the mid vagon so that the sparks and smoke...More
