Trams will be back in Wenceslas Square

Trams in Prague has been running here for 113 years. The first tram in Prague went from Letenska restaurace to Kralovska obora on 18th July 1891. In the 70’s of the 20th century the trams were almost abolished, metro was suppose to take over the transport. However, trams are still here as a necessary part of the city transport and the city plans to build even more tracks these days.

It has been 26 years since the last tram went along Wenceslas Square, on 13th December 1980 to be exact. Before that the trams had been going on Wenceslas Square for more than 100 years. The city council plans to return trams to this famous sguare, near the National Museum. The trams should come back after finishing the building of the city ring.

Also the Wenceslas Square will look different. According to the project of architect Jakub Cigler, who won the competition for the new look of Wenceslas Square, the square will have wider pavements, more restaurant gardens and shops. There will be only one traffic lane for cars which will park in an underground garage.
