The tourist train returned to the streets of Nitra on Monday, April 1 after the seasonal break. The second season of the Arriva train, part of the public transport paid by the town, will bring about several novelties.

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.
