During the first world war, the Czechoslovak legion were a voluntary unit of foreign resistance against the Habsburg monarchy. The resistance had many forms and the legion fought many battles, but perhaps the best known, is the one at the Trans-Siberian Railway, which the legion took over, for a short period. The exposition offers the visitors to view a replica of the train used in battles, along with original weapon system.
Another part of the exposition are texts, often from the legion itself, which serve to describe the purpose of the legion and the time it was created. All of that, along with experts on the trains in original uniforms, make it a must-see event.
