Budapest Metro, in Hungarian Budapesti metró, opened in 1896 to celebrate the Millennium of Hungary; it is the second oldest metro system in Europe after London. In 2002 the historical line M1 was declared a World Heritage Site.
Attualmente la metropolitanda di Budapest è composta da quattro linee: M1 (gialla), M2 (rossa) e M3 (blu). La M4 (verde) è la più recente: il primo segmento ha aperto il 28 marzo 2014 ed è stata pesantemente criticata per i notevoli ritardi nei lavori, tuttora in corso.
The Budapest metro system is made up of four lines: M1 (yellow), M2 (red), and M3 (blu). M4 (green) is the newest line. Its first segment was opened on March 28th 2014, and the whole project was severely criticized for the severe delays in the works, which are now still in progress.
Line M5 is still under construction. It will connect Varga Jeno tér to Pomázi út, double crossing the Danube river and Margaret Island.
