The Christmas tram has already become some tradition not only for citizens of the capital but also visitors of Bratislava
admire the tram. In comparison to previous years, the Christmas Tram has grown younger two years ago, as the original ČKD Tatra T2
manufactured in 1955-62 has been replaced by a T6A5 dating back to 1991. Tram will contribute towards the spirit of Christmas festive season as holidays of peace settling not only into the warmth of homes but also among people.
The theme of the interior and exterior of the Christmas Tram this year will be the biblical story of the birth of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem. On December 6 St. Nicolaus will be accompanied by the devil and the angel who will give the children some little sweets inside the tram.
Forget the hustle, make sure you don't miss this attraction and come to absorb the Christmas atmosphere while sitting in the uniquely decorated vehicles reminding you of living rooms, listening to thematic melodies.
