As a part of our Comenius project called Let stones speak we visited Hanusovce nad Toplou and Bystre. We visited interesting sights of the area. Hanušovce nad Topľou, a small town in the middle of east Slovakia, home for more than 3,5 thousand of people, is spread on Hanušovská pahorkatina highlands, at northeast base of slope of Slánske vrchy mountains. We visited big Manor House which is a site of The Homeland Study Museum with valuable ethnographical and naturalistic exposition focused on Vranov nad Topľou district area.Another technical sight is railway bridge with the biggest arch in the middle Europe, its arch is just right over the town. It is 40 metres high and more than 400 metres long.

The railway viaduct which soars above the small town of Hanušovce nad Topľou, east of Presov( Slovakia) , is among the longest in central Europe. Forty metres above the valley floor and describing a 390-metre-long curve, it is an impressive engineering achievement (a sister viaduct of similar proportions can be seen just outside the town). Beautiful constructions with a bent lower belt were set on pillars of different height copying the shape of the valley it bridges over. The tallest of pillars is 28 m and its height above the terrain is 40 metres. The viaduct was completely destroyed during the Second World War.
But this valuable technical monument was reconstructed and it serves again. Along with several similar bridge constructions it is part of the railway track between Kapušany and Vranov.
