    Good pictures. I love the five interesting facts you mentioned. That's way more passengers that rely on trams than I would have thought.

  3. I have been to Poland few years ago but I didnt get to see Lodz city. I love tram for some reason. Seen the tram in Melbourne, San Francisco and Budapest. I think if there is tram in the city, it beautify the whole city.

    It's really cool that they still have trams in Poland, it sounds like a lot of the Polish people really rely on it as a stable mode of transport!

    How cool! If I would have the opportunity to travel to Poland, I have to make sure I ride their trams. It would be a neat way to get around and see the sights.
