Bohinj Railway

In the second half of 19th century, Trieste was a flourishing, quickly developing town and the main port of Austro-Hungarian Monarchy as well.
The traffic was fastly increasing, so soon after the Southern Railway had been built the need of another railway connection with Vienna appeared.

Polemics about different possible alternatives were lasting through decades. Finally, the decision for a route known as Bohinj Railway was accepted.

The given presentation is focused on the section Podbrdo - Nova Gorica with special accent on its part through Baca Valley.
