Trams in Helsinki, the capital and largest city of Finland, have been in constant operation since the end-19th century.
Trams are the main form of public transportation in central Helsinki. The tram network currently consists of 11 lines with 293 stops in service with a track length of 38 km (23.6 mi) and has a daily ridership of over 1.5 million.
Panning to travel to the capital of Finland soon? Here are some pictures of Helsinki trams and streets from my walks through the city.
The first horse-drawn tram line in the city was introduced in 1891 and the first electric one in 1900.
