Some attractions will not be able to operate this year, and the Advent lights will be reduced in several cities because of the energy crisis. However, luckily, we will not have to miss the famous Advent tram in Miskolc!
From 27 November 2022, the appealing Advent tram will run again between Tisza station and Felső-Majláth terminus in Miskolc, karacsonyszeretlek.hu reports. You can get on the tram if you have a valid ticket, pass or travel document. Tickets can be purchased with cash or credit card from the ticket inspector.
“Despite the energy crisis, Miskolc will still have an Advent tram. We hope to be proud of it again this year, and we hope that the legendary Miskolc tram will be the most beautiful in Europe this year” – announced Pál Veres, the mayor of Miskolc, on his social media page.
The Christmas vehicle has been voted the most beautiful Advent tram in Europe five times in a competition organised by the Czech portal MHD86. In view of the current state of emergency, the Advent tram will be able to transport 120 people at a time. When the number of passengers on the train reaches 120, a “vehicle full” sign will be displayed behind the windscreen of the tram, 24.hu writes.
In order to ensure that everyone can admire the Advent tram, it is recommended that instead of travelling the entire route, you take the tram for as long as you need to take pictures and enjoy the ride. Every year, the Advent tram is thoroughly prepared for the road, but an unexpected failure (like in the case of an older car) can happen at any time. In the event of a breakdown, MVK Zrt. (Miskolc Transport Company) is unable to replace the train, and in such a case, information will be provided immediately via the Facebook page and the displays at the stops.
