Tourists from abroad can buy a travel ticket together with a foreign-language guide and single-use headphones.

“Commentary will be available in English and French. During the season, we will also prepare the Hungarian and German version,” informed the general manager of Arriva Nitra, Juraj Kusy, as quoted by the SITA newswire.
