Cosa farete

I will take you to a walk along the unique technical monuments former Prague-Lány horse-drawn railway. In my home region about 20 km west of Prague there are city of Kladno. The presence of coal beds in the Kladno region led to the development of mines and ironworks. Kladno became one of the most industrial cities in Central Europe and could receive, a nickname “Czech Manchester“. Industrial progress ushered in the need for the development of transportation. The horse railway from Prague to Lány was began service in 1830. Apart from the famous horse railway from České Budějovice to Linz it was the second rail connection in continental Europe and in 1830 with its 51.6 km it represented 43% of European, or 28% of worldwide railway network.

Let me introduce myself a bit. I live in the region of Central Bohemia from my birth. I studied history at Charles University. I am interested in the local history, particualry of the historical Křivoklátsko area and industrial Kladno. Although Prague is a ‘crown‘ of Bohemia and is a tourist destination number 1, there is a circle of less known, but enormously interesting places on the edge of Prague region. I have decided to focuse on these hidden but magical places and show them to the visitors coming to the Czech republic.
