During the summer holiday season, historic trams from the 1940s and 1950s operate on the line T. Waiting at the stop, you can expect the arrival of, among others, the so-called “Berlinki” (Berliners). These carriages, designed especially for Warsaw, were exported to Berlin during World War II. After the end of the war, they were recovered and brought back to Poland’s capital. On the route, you may also spot the N-generation trams. The oldest one served the line 30, which was launched at the opening of the Trasa W-Z (W-Z Route, i.e. East-West Route) in 1949.

Passengers can see many buildings important for the history of Warsaw and Poland, as well as the city panorama from two bridges. the Central Railway Station, the Rotunda building, the National Museum, the National Stadium, the Old Town and the The Warsaw Rising Museum are just a few of the places that will be passed by during the journey.

Historical note

The historical line T first started in 1996 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Warsaw as the capital of Poland. The trams started at Narutowicza square, reached Praga over Poniatowskiego bridge and returned to Ochota over Śląsko-Dąbrowski bridge, and next along Marszałkowska and Filtrowa streets.

However, the beginnings were not successful. There was a short circuit in the historical tram electrical system right before it entered a bridge. It could not go any further. It was connected to the line no. 22 train and pushed to Wiatraczna loop. Finally, the carriage dating back to 1908 was replaced by a younger one.

Since then, every year the historic trams of the line T travel through Warsaw, carries tourists, enthusiasts and residents between the attractions of the city.
