Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, experienced several big events and milestones during 2019. Here is the selection of the five most important as chosen by The Slovak Spectator.
1. Trams run again to Karlova Ves borough
After more than six months of works, the tram service resumed on the first reconstructed section of the so-called Karlovesko-Dúbravská radial tram track on December 19. The section from the Molecova tram stop to the turning point in Karlova Ves was supposed to be out in operation in September, but the work was delayed due to poorly drawn engineering networks and a dispute with land owners in Dolné Krčace, where the traction substation is located. Resuming the tram service on the remaining reconstructed section further to Dúbravka borough remains open due to the ongoing dispute. In the meantime, the line is supplied with electricity from an alternative source.
