  • The Budapest Metro is an attraction in itself! You cannot fail to be charmed, in fact, to see the cars decidedly vintage on which you are travelling, which, although deliberately dated, are absolutely efficient and like clockwork! For this reason, after spending a few days to use the various subway lines, appears attractive the idea of visiting the Museum of the underground line. This museum is located inside the station Deak Ferenc Ter metro, where three metro lines. To access the Museum you have to go down the first flight of stairs that leads inside the metro and stop in the basement before descending the escalator. At that point, look for the subscription ticket, ticket offices, revenue exceeded and you will be taken to a second door. Varcatela and you will be at the ticket office of the Museum. The entrance ticket costs just 350 guilders (approximately € 1.00) and the Museum is open from 10.00 to 17.00 from Tuesday to Sunday. Will make you aware that, to take photos, you must buy a permit for 500 Florins, but you can help it, especially since the Museum is little known and it is highly likely that you'll be doing the visit alone. The Museum is housed in a disused underground Hall in the 50. While visiting, you will often hear the noise of underground trains that pass a few meters and that make the visit even more characteristic. The most fascinating thing in the Museum are three cars still on the tracks placed, strictly closed, with some mannequins mimicking the travelers. Are some of the oldest subway cars and one of them has traveled up to the mid-' 70. On the wall there are different cases and bulletin boards containing photographs and material for issuing tickets, subscriptions and the like. Unfortunately, not all photo captions are translated into English, but the main ones are bilingual. They are very useful, as they illustrate the main stages of the history of the metro, from the projects on paper for its realization at the Expo, at his inauguration in the presence of Emperor Franz Joseph (Sissi's husband), at the time of the first world war, women were hired, to make up for the absence of men, engaged at the front, up to the present day. It's not a visit that takes a long time, but is quite impressive, so I advise you to visit the Museum, when you happen to use kindling to Deak Ferenc Ter to change Metro line:)

  • Metro in the Centre of Budapest is one of the oldest in Europe. There are all kept as it was. So that the first attraction in the Hungarian capital you will find soon after arrival. The station is very short, shallow. The only thing please note: ticket vending machines have not all old stations. Some in the wooden booths sit tëten′ki (like 100 years ago) and somewhere in 11:00 pm, they will go away. So it is impossible to buy a ticket. Have to go Hare and it scares: (

  • Small but fascinating museum! Well worth a visit.
  • Small, but very pleasant museum; worth to visit if you are interested in technology or transportation.
  • Very small and hard to find. Perhaps it is even interesting, but to see in its entirety in 2-3 minutes. The fee for taking pictures of 500 forints,-in the light of what I wrote above-a misunderstanding.
