Have you ever heard about this Christmas tram? It's a place where you can feel like you are in your living room, with a warm and cozy atmosphere and sweet Christmas music. The tram is decorated with Christmas lights and inside you will find cozy furniture, a fireplace, and some amusement. Every year the Christmas tram's interior and exterior have a different theme. In 2019 the theme was the biblical story of the birth of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem. The tram offers free rides for all visitors, and this experience is loved by both kids and adults. So, enjoy the atmosphere of old town Bratislava and beautiful melodies.
