Trams are the second most important backbone of the transit system (after buses) in Budapest, the capital and largest city of Hungary.
In 1866, the streets of Budapest were 6th in the world to establish horse tramway traffic. The first electric line in the city was opened in 1887. Today, the Budapest tram network is one of the world’s largest tram networks – the length of the total route is 157 km (97 mi).
Budapest has 36 tram lines. One of the most beautiful tramlines in the world, tram 2 runs on a picturesque route along the River Danube.
