Orava Forest Railway Oravská Lesná

a narrow-gauge railway preserving unique industrial heritage, which operates all year round. It is the Orava section of the former Kysuce-Orava Forest Railway, which was one of the most important forest railways in Slovakia. It was originally built at the start of the twentieth century exclusively to carry timber. It was re-opened in 2008 as a tourist attraction. It now runs between Tanečník and Beskyd stations every day. The starting station is situated around 6 km from the village of Oravská Lesná. The restored buildings house an exhibition on the Orava Forest Railway and the aristocratic “board of directors” (komposesorát) that owned much of Orava in the past.
