Things to Do, What's New — By Gyongi Asztalos on September 28, 2011 at 3:03 pm

Without the classic yellow 19th century trams snaking along its streets, Budapest would be incomplete! Tram number 2, running from north to south along the Pest embankment, is one of the original pieces manufactured by the Ganz at the turn of the century. Not only is it a piece of the city’s history, but takes a rout that allows it to be more than a mere means of transport serving to get passengers from A to B. While passing several monumental buildings on the Pest side, including the Houses of Parliament, Academy of Sciences and Inner City Parish Church, it also provides a panoramic view of the River, as well as the Gellért Hill and Castle Hill on the Buda side.
