ŠARGAN EIGHT
The most exciting part of the tour is the Šargan eight - one of the most attractive tourist-museum railways in Europe among the narrow-gauge railways. It is a masterpiece of world industrial heritage. 
Building it in the period from 1921 to 1925, the designers bridged the altitude difference of 300 meters above sea level, and overcame the air distance of 3.5 kilometers with the famous loop in the shape of number 8. It is about 13.5 kilometers long, has about twenty tunnels, several bridges and viaducts, which make up most of the railway. The train roared for the first time back in 1925, and the last eight were made on February 28, 1974, when the railway was abolished. 
The renovation of the Šargan eight for tourist purposes began in 1999 and to this day the entire railway route has been revitalized, with authentic station facilities and original old wagons, while entire area has excellent well marked hiking routes for nature lovers.
