it's sooooo cute!
The first metro on the land (hehehe meaning not on a island like london and Glasgow which pretends to be the first ever ;))
This was just a single line opened for the world fair! Now - few years ago it has been refurbished in old style and it looks like it were the first day after openning - some 100 years ago, really very nice stations. But the trains aren't  similar to any kind of vehicle in the world! they look abit like a jeepy or a strange cars rolling in a row... just have a look at the pics, and u will get what i mean!
 Unfortunately after this first line for Budapest - there was no extentions or new lines built. Only after many decades was the second line born.
The old line -  we were riding not to arrive at any point we wanted but for quite other purposes - it's like sight - like some kind of monument, it's a THING u have to see when in Budapest!
