New water tram services in Gdańsk
A brand new water tram service was opened on 5 June 2012 in Gdańsk. Two lines: F5 and F6 will take passengers along Motława and Martwa Wisła canals, thus providing an interesting opportunity for the city’s sightseeing from the water level perspective. The trams will operate until 30 September.
The F5 water tram runs from Żabi Kruk via the Green Gate stopping at a number of places on its way to the Nowy Port Lighthouse, while The F6 water tram starts at Fish market and cruise to National Yachting Centre. In both cases, the whole trip lasts about 4 hours; 20 -30 minutes between particular stops. There will be three cruises daily on each line.
The tram vessels are about 20 metres long and 1,5 metres high and can take up to 40 passengers and 15 bicycles at one go. They move with an average speed of 12 km/h. Tickets cost 10/5zł regardless of how many stops one travels and can be bought on-board.
The water tram scheme was developed within the framework of the programme “Revitalisation of Waterways in Gdańsk” partially funded by the EU.
