INFORMATION


The first horse tram was launched in Odessa on July 20, 1880. Construction and operation of wagons with horse and then with the steam traction was under the guidance of company called "Belgian Society of Odessa horse railways." Konka and parovichki as them lovingly called citizens were a kind of modern motive power and immediately won the sympathy of Odessa citizens. Belgian concessionaires and city government just a couple of years later have created an extensive scheme for passenger and freight traffic. It had nineteen routes connected the city centre and the suburbs. The total length of routes was 47.3 verst. For more than thirty years trams and parovichki were moving by the streets of Odessa, bringing considerable profits to the city. In 1990, they were replaced by usual for us working on electricity trams.
