Wrocław’s historic ‘Gustaw’ tram is back in action today; it will continue to run on weekends and public holidays until the end of October.
According to kochamwroclaw.pl, the ‘Gustaw’ tram is a Konstal type N that started operating in Wrocław in the 1950s. The trams of this type were eventually replaced a few decades later by the Konstal 102 Na and 105 Na.
However now Wrocławians and tourists can hop onboard a refurbished Konstal type N tram to get a sense of what public transport looked like during the first decade of the PRL-era.
Anyone who has an urbancard can travel on the tram at no additional cost. Those who don’t have a public transport card needn’t fork out either – the cost of travelling on ‘Gustaw’ is the same as any other MPK journey in Wrocław.
The tram operates between 11am and 6pm on public holidays and weekends, travelling between the Opera and Zoo tram stops.
The precise route of the tourist tram is as follows:
OPERA – Świdnicka – Podwale – Krupnicza – Kazimierza Wielkiego – pl. Dominikański – Oławska – Traugutta – pl. Społeczny – Wyszyńskiego – Szczytnicka – Skłodowskiej-Curie – Rondo Reagana – Skłodowskiej-Curie – most Zwierzyniecki – Wajdy – Wróblewskiego – ZOO
