The world’s second oldest tram system after London, the Tünel line was completed on December 5, 1874. After a few trial runs with livestock, a 10-unit monetary toll for riding the Tünel tram was established, allowing for human passengers to ride. The Grand Opening took place on January 17, 1875 with a spectacular ceremony, attended by local and foreign guests. The new Tünel line was a big hit during the Ottoman and Republic periods. Today, this short yet delightful and nostalgic journey connects the Karaköy Pier to the Beyoğlu district.

Tünel district, Tünel-Beyoğlu.
