The Google Cultural Institute has taken an interest in one of Romania’s most popular touristic attractions: the Mocanita steam train in the Northern region of Maramures.

Google Cultural Institute officials invited representatives of the Calea Feroviara Forestiera (CFF), which manages the Mocanita, for a meeting in Paris to discuss ways of promoting the steam train, and test latest generation tools.

Every year, 55,000 Romanian and foreign tourists go aboard the steam train which travels 40 kilometers at a snail’s pace along the Vaser valley in Northern Romania.

The Google Cultural Institute brings together millions of artifacts from multiple partners, with the stories that bring them to life, in a virtual museum. It started in 2011 and it includes the Google Art Project, which features high-resolution images of artworks from museums in over 40 countries.
