wonderful trams for a wonderful city!

please, don´t do any metros. Krakow is too beautiful for transporting underground. its better (and cheaper) to optimize the actual trams system for doing it faster and with longer trams and maybe put it underground in downtown.

Krakow is not that big, with exclusive ways for trams, more spared stations, and longer trams like the one in Rabat it would work as it does in Valencia and several German cities.

the most beautiful cities in the world specially if they aren't huge, they must be seen from the surface every single day. going to work in a tunnel is alienating, I don´t desire that to my worst enemy.

if you travel everyday undergroud it's the same to live in ugly Taipei or Sao Paulo, than to live in Krakow or Florence.

You mean two tunnels of one line or you mean two different lines crossed under The Old Town in the first stage ?
I guess the 3 rd proposal is what you consider ? How many stations ( how long ) would be the 1 stage line/ lines ?

Kuklińskiego street, unfortunately not possible at this point to make a similar picture - the visible in the foreground stood the foundations of sound barriers

Thx (Google translate)


In 1974, the construction of an underground tunnel, the first subway line in the vicinity of the railway station. Until the end of 1989 managed to achieve only a 180-m section of the station platforms. After the political changes further construction was halted for a few years. In 1994 he passed the General Land Use Plan City of Krakow, where subway construction was abandoned in favor of a rapid tram. New investment has been built to use the tunnel section that was to be completed for communication, however the north-south instead of east-west.

Between 1995 and 1999 built another 605 meters of the tunnel under the street Lubomirski, and soon started to build a tram route from the street Wielicka to the settlement Kurdwanów, where he was to end with the first corridor linking KST north and south of the city. Further work is carried out in stages:

Construction of Krakow Fast Tram (north-south) was divided into several stages:

Stage I (put October 1, 2000) - Building a tram line from the Kurdwanów to Wielicka street including the construction of a loop of Kurdwanów.

Stage II (completed in autumn 2008 - was opened on Dec. 11, 2008) - Construction of the tram line Rondo Grzegórzeckie to Krowodrza (including the construction of a tunnel on the section from Rondo Mogilskie the main train station and Galeria Krakowska the Cracow University of Technology and the modernization of the existing section of the Krowodrza Gorka). In the underground section of fast tram there are two stops: University (two levels) and the Central Station tunnel

Stage III - the construction of the tram line from Rondo Grzegórzeckie to Wielicka Street by Kotlarski Bridge with a branch to the settlement Terns. In November 2010 was completed in the first part of the stage route to the small loop Plaszow
