The Sarajevo Tram Network: Europe’s oldest Latest news from BiH...
The New Year is slowly but surely approaching. In the spirit of welcoming 2017,
we travelled back in time 132 years and came across Europe’s oldest electric tram line: The Sarajevo Tram Network.
Namely, Sarajeo was the first city in Europe to have a full-time (from dawn to dusk) operational electric tram line.
The Sarajevo citywide system of electric trams opened on New Year’s Day in 1885, shortly after the city became part of
the Austro-Hungarian empire. Since then, the trams have been important in the development and expansion of the city.
Visit Sarajevo and spend New Year’s Eve here, having the time of your life.
And, if you happen to take a ride on Sarajevo’s tram tracks you will know – they’re Europe’s oldest.
