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.
Visitors of Nitra will learn about the local monuments from the audio while the information will be accessible right at the site the train is passing.
The train commutes daily until autumn. In April, May and October, it will go every hour from 12:00 to 16:00. During the summer season from June to September, the train will transfer tourists every hour from 10:00 to 17:00. During weekends from June to September, there will be more frequent connections to Zobor twice a day.
The prices of tickets have also changed. A brief circuit costs €2, children and the disabled pay €1. A long circuit is an additional €1 in both categories.
