The Budapest Metro is the oldest continental underground in Europe. Only the London Tube is older than the Metro lines in Budapest. To get through the city there is no faster way than the metro because of the non existing traffic. There are 4 metro lines going through Budapest which cover 7 ends of the city and meet all in the middle at Déak Ferenc Tér which makes it really easy to get off one line and hop on the other one.

Watch out for thieves in the Metro in Budapest. This is how they operate:
