In Bosnia, thanks to the investments of the government of Republic of Srpska (one of the entities in the country) all the reconstructing works were completed by 2010, when the first & legendary narrow-gauge train ‘Ćiro’ arrived from Mokra Gora to Višegrad. Since then, the train is connecting those two places, not on a regular basis, but on a request for organized tours, since some works are necessary in the future, Itiniari writes.

The train, whose official name is ‘Nostalgia’, among Bosnian people is affectionately called ‘Ćiro’. And it actually tells the nostalgic story intertwined with the history of the region. For many generations, this train was a part of everyone’s life. Decades ago ‘Ćiro’ was transporting workers, farmers, children, students, tourists, but also mail, livestock, coal and food.
