Railway Station and Plane Tree (Celje-Slovenia)
In 1846, a 570 kilometers long railway was built to connect Vienna and Trieste. That railway also passed through Celje, because of which this station was built. The establishment of railway traffic had great impact on the economical development of Celje. This two-storey building looks very similar to most of the other buildings of similar purposes built during the time of the Habsburg Empire. 120 years ago, a plane tree was planted nearby, which later became the biggest plant tree in Slovenia. The position of the tree was taken into account each time a road was built or renewed. Due to that, the tree was proclaimed as “tree of the year” in 2006.
