Fodor's Review

A source of pride for České Budějovice, Koněspřežka is the oldest railway station on the continent. Designed to transport salt to Bohemia from Linz in Austria, a horse-drawn railway was built between 1825 and 1832. One of the first major industrial developments in Europe, it reduced the journey between Linz and České Budějovice from two weeks to four days. Public transport was introduced soon afterward. The station is now a part of the city museum, and houses

an exhibit dedicated to the horse-drawn railroad. You can also pick-up a brochure from the tourist office that details other buildings throughout town that played a role in the transport.
