On the 2-nd of September, I’ve introduced Wednesday weekly posts.
These posts are dedicated to the destinations I’ve travelled to, probably, some time ago. Maybe, even, a year or two ago. The posts will be about the sightseeing places, people, my adventures, namely – everything that can be connected with travelling. Are you interested? Do you want to give it a try? Feel free to subscribe to this blog, or just the tag “Wednesday Weekly Post”.
And yes, you’ve got it right – the posts will appear on Wednesdays 😉
P. S. : This doesn’t mean that I won’t post stuff on the rest of the days, if I have what to post.
Feel free to leave any feedback! I would love to read anything from you!
I have always wrote (and told) that the museums are mostly boring. But when I told that I have never meant Carris Museum in Lisbon – one of the best I’ve ever visited. It is also known as “tram museum” or “public transport museum”.
Now we need to clarify the things a bit. Actually, Lisbon is notorious for its’ old-style yellow trams that are completely the same as 50 years ago. And if you visit Lisbon, you will definitely meet these ancient trams – and they are actually a full value sightseeing place. So, I was going to this museum only to see more of these lovely trams, but it appeared that there’s a whole nice collection of public transport there.
The museum consists of three buildings. You will move between these buildings via one of these ancient trams, well, more comfortable that the one you’ll ride the city.
There I’ve met a portion of long-awaited ancient trams.
In Lisbon children often try to go for a free ride on the tram by jumping on one of its’ steps.
Different old buses. You can enter them, as well.
And the operator’s cabin of Lisbon metro.
The museum is located in tram depot of Lisbon. There I’ve found a canteen for tram drivers.
It’s a good, authentic and cheap one, but be prepared that nobody will speak English there.
