Viaduct
Viaduct

The most famous object of Biatorbágy is the double viaduct built for carrying the rail way. It became famous by a sad story from 1931, when Matuska Silvester exploded the viaduct when a train passed through the bridge.

Viaduct reminds also the great epoch of Hungarian rail way and bridge building engineering in the end of 19th century.

That rail way going through the village center of that time was moved later to the fringe of village.

One of the viaduct is used as public place for walking today. You can reach this place by car from today's town center or by walk on stairs from foot of viaduct.
