Mura’s River Bridge
MiRi, Murska Sobota founders, members and partners signed the Declaration on the Mura‘s Bridge in the Mura-Drava-Rails network at the signing ceremony, on October 16th, 2020
With the celebratory signing we have marked the 130th birthday of the Radkesburger Bahn as it is called in German – or Radgonska proga in Slovene – of which Mura’s Bridge was part. This missing link in the Mura-Drava-Rails network enables 440 railway kilometres in four countries of hthe Mura and Drava river regions.
A big thank you to all contributors of the celebration – that was held completely online – to Borna Abramović for the introductory presentation; to Herald Ruijters for the short but insightful intervention; to Marko Savić, for the Mura’s River Bidge Declaration presentation; and not least to all the participants at the celebration.
