  • Nderground tram

    The development of the tram in Volgograd was carried out more actively than in other cities. At the beginning of the 20th century, Tsaritsyn became the first county town where a tram appeared. And after more than half a century, the only high-speed tram appeared in Volgograd. The idea of ​​creating a hybrid of the metro and an ordinary ground tram was put forward in the early 70s by Georgy Kurin, the ex-deputy chairman of the city executive committee of Volgograd. Given the length of Volgograd along the Volga, the creation of a high-speed underground tram solved the transport problem: the metro was relied only on cities with a population of at least a million people (the population of Volgograd in those years was 800,000).
