Tram No. 13 roams the streets of Zagreb, driving passengers to ‘everywhere and nowhere’. It caused the worst tram accident in the city’s history and has killed the most people. It often derailed. And yet, this charming old streetcar nicknamed ‘Genscher’ is a hotel on wheels and a lining room for the numerous ‘invisible’ Croatia that has been pushed to margins in these days of transition. It seems as both the tram and the people driving on it are traveling together to the scrap yard.
