This issue of hidden europe features the Belgian coastal tram route, which, as we say in that article, is the longest tram route in the world. Trams are often thought of as being essentially for transport within a city, rather than for longer distances. That marks out the Belgian coastal route as being unusual. Yet elsewhere around Europe, there are other examples of inter-municipal tram routes.
In southern Poland, for example, a complex network of trams links Katowice with twelve nearby towns. And two routes that run between towns survive in the Czech Republic, both in northern Bohemia.
