From Salva to Viseu

This is a photo of one of the many viaducts belonging to Salva – Viseu railway which was built by the students during Communist Romania and linked Bistrita-Nasaud with Maramures. Students had no proper working tools and training. It was hard work building the railway because plenty of tunnels and viaducts were needed. Work accidents were frequent and some even lost their lives. They were students “working for their country”. The Communists called it voluntary work but as a matter of fact Romanian students were forced to spend their holidays there in order to prove how much they loved their country
