Sarajevo, population 640 000, has an 11km standard-gauge tramway with one main route (there is a branch to the railway station) and six lines.
The first tram to run in the was on a 760mm-gauge line opened in 1885. The system was converted to standard gauge in 1958-1960. The last new trams purchased by the city were Tatra K2 in the 1983. The current fleet includes many second-hand cars donated to the city as part of reconstruction after the Yugoslav civil war.
