Bratislava, Slovakia

The city of Bratislava, Slovakia has a very efficient tram system serving the area along the Danube River and the old medieval part of the city. As can be seen from the pictures below, cars vary markedly in design, age, and color scheme. A mix of old cars from the former Communist era and modern light rail cars traverse the tracks of Bratislava. Sept. 2004 photos
