Acrobatic celebration of 110th anniversary of Bohinj railway

How would you imagine a spectacular celebration of the 110th anniversary of the Bohinj railway? What about an acrobatic spectacle on a train? The Dunking Devils, the acrobatic basketball team, marked the railway’s jubilee with acrobatic performances which left viewers around the world speechless. Take a look at their video and enjoy the stunts from Slovenia!

The Bohinj railway, connecting Jesenice to Nova Gorica in western Slovenia, is celebrating its 110-year anniversary. It was opened in 1906 and in the decades that followed, the railway escaped modernisation and thus has maintained its original form to this day. Even today, the railway is proud of its almost unaltered 28 tunnels, five galleries and 68 bridges.

The celebration of the jubilee was marked in a special way. A Slovenian acrobatic basketball team, the Dunking Devils, filmed a short video of their stunts on the roof of the train and in an open wagon. What makes that so special? The stunts were done while the train was in motion. Take a look at their spectacular acrobatics in the video Basketball Freestyle Dunks on a Speeding Train.

Don`t miss the experience of a ride on the Bohinj Railway! It is known as one of the most beautiful train ride in the Alps, and it also made it to the Lonely Planet`s list of Ten most often overlooked rail journeys.

All aboard!
