For Enthusiasts

Trams and Metro

Detailed information about the tram fleet and the metro can be found on separate pages. I also aim to add further pages in due course covering buses and the tram museum. Also below are a transport map produced by myself, along with some useful web links.

Transport Map for Enthusiasts

Rail, tram and bus enthusiasts may find this transport map of interest, produced especially for this website and updated to October 2023. It shows railways (including closed lines) and the metro, plus the current tram network showing the normal tram route numbers (temporary reroutings not included). Latest additions are the two tram extensions (Slivenec and Dedina) which opened in October 2023.

Older versions: 2015, 2018, 2022.
