Zagreb’s delightful Backo Mini Express model train museum will make you feel like a kid again.

Backo Mini Express

Tucked away in a small courtyard is one of Zagreb’s hidden gems, the Backo Mini Express model railway museum. Featuring hundreds of scale-model trains, and over a kilometre of track, it’s the largest of its kind in the region. The models are painstakingly detailed, with beautiful mountains, villages, stations and shops, all populated with hundreds of figurines going about their daily business.

Trains manoeuvre through towns, over bridges through tunnels, and even under your feet. The museum has rain and lightning effects, with a full day and night cycle. There’s also an interactive farm model, where you can press buttons to make the cows graze, a lumberjack cut down a tree, and much more.
