Bytom -tram number 38

In Bytom there is a well preserved medieval urban layout based on an oval -shaped building plan,with a rectangular market square. It is worth having a closer look at sleeping lion movement erected in 1873 commemorating the county residents who died during Franco-Prusian War in 1870-1871.

In Bytom tram system is well developed. The oldest tram number is 38. Three times an hour a historic tram of Konstal N type, shuttles on the route Holy Trinity Church - Bytom Prusa street. The tram dates back to the turn of the 1940s and 50s, and, although the ride is just 6 minutes long, a lot of enthusiasts of old trams come to Bytom just to take a trip on this particular model.
