Budapest is among the top European destinations for spending the winter holidays. Although it rarely snows there the city looks very festive and magical because of all the lights. One of the city's landmarks are the Christmas trams. These trams are running on their usual tracks but what's special about them is the 30, 000 shimmering led lights.

Usually, there are a couple of routes with lighted trams but the best one is No.2. It's basically a cheap (a regular ticket is required) and comfortable sightseeing tour because this tram runs along the Danube Promenade. In fact, it's ranked as #7 in the 'Top 10 Trolley Rides' by National Geographic. The Christmas trams start running in evenings after 4 pm between early December and the beginning of January.
