About the tram
The Advent-tram of the Hungarian city, Miskolc, has been transporting passengers for eight years. The unique thing about the tram is that every year it gets a brand-new look. In 2018, a blue-coloured frozen castle-look awaited passengers. This year, the tram transformed into a delicious gingerbread house. The tram is decorated with many lights, curtains, and 3D elements. Inside the tram, each piece of furniture of the house is also made out of gingerbread. The middle of the tram is the house’s kitchen, while the two ends of it are the living rooms.
