Hop on board a tram on any Sunday or public holiday from now until the beginning of September, and you may be forgiven for thinking that you have stepped back in time.
For the historic ‘0’ route has reopened for the summer, offering a chance to view the city from on board a vintage tram. The route begins at the Engineering Museum, passing through Starowiślna, Plac Wszystkich Świętych, Straszewskiego, Basztowa, and on to Cichy Kącik. From there, it will make the return journey to the Museum, via Basztowa and Westerplatte.
There is also an option to take an extended route – the Wanda Loop – all the way to Nowa Huta. This journey, which takes almost an hour, also starts at the Engineering Museum. From Basztowa, it goes to Lubicz, Rondo Mogilska, Aleja Jana Pawła II, Aleja Solidarności, and on to Kopiec Wanda, before returning to the museum. But passengers can alight at Wanda to explore the mound, and will also get information about the areas through which they pass, from a guide.
And best of all? A ticket for line ‘0’ costs… the same as any other tram or bus ticket in the city. It will run until September 2.
