My wife and I have been on a beautiful train journey in Austria. We flew to Vienna and from there we boarded the Emona, the train to the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana. Emona was the ancient Roman name for Ljubljana. It is a six-hour trip and we booked it, of course, because of the very scenic 25-mile (40 km) track which starts at Gloggnitz and leads over the Semmering Pass to Mürzzuschlag. From Wiki: ”A trip on the Semmering railway, which is in full use 160 years after its building, still impresses the traveller as a special experience by its varied landscape, the typical style of its mansions and the characteristic sequence of viaducts and tunnel constructions. In 1998 the Semmering railway was added to the list of the UNESCO World Heritage sites.”
Here are a few impressions of our trip.
