The Historic Annushka Tram Runs In Moscow Again
17.12.2012 16:17

The historic Annushka tram resumes its operations and now connects Chistye Prudy with Kaluzhskaya Square (Oktyabrskaya metro station).  

      The first tram in Moscow began running in 1911. It had the letter "A" instead of a number, hence Annushka as a popular loving name for it (a tender version of the name Anna). Two other trams were "" and "", or Bukashka (a small bug) and Verochka (a version of the name Vera), respectively. On Bukashka route the tram was later changed to a trolleybus, while the route remained unchanged: it takes the passengers all along Moscow's Garden Ring.
