Trams in Cieszyn 1911-1921 Česky   Polski
There are very few traces left of Cieszyn's trams. The depot building has survived in ul. Dojazdowa, but it has been modified and today serves as a bookbinding workshop.

For a long time there was support pole by the railway crossing in ul. Zamkowa (today in Museum of Cieszyn Silesia in Cieszyn).
There are ornamental rosettes for supporting the overhead wires on the elevations of two buildings in ul. Głęboka. Other rosettes are also on the building on the corner of ul. Szersznika and ul. Kochanowskiego, on the walls of the Borromean sisters' convent in ul. Wyższa Brama and the house on the corner of ul. Bielska and ul. Górna. On the Czech side there is just one on the elevation of the railway station.

The tracks were removed in 1923, although some parts remain under the tarmac at the end of ul. Wyższa Brama where it joins ul. Górna (the last tram stop). They were also used as an element in the construction of one of the footbridges in the Lasek Miejski nad Puńcówk± nature reserve.
