Budapest, Underground Museum
The underground station Deák tér, in Budapest, is a very particular destination. Here you can find the Underground Museum, which tells the story of Hungarian transports through reconstructions and historical objects! The station was opened in 1896; later, it was expanded through the addition of two more lines, which made Deák Ferenc tér one of the most important places for city’s public transport.
When you visit this museum, you would be able to consider underground from another point of view! Guests will visit an old station, from a different period. Thanks to explanatory panels and old photographs, you can follow the construction of the first European metro line. On the track, there are also three small, yellow carriages from different periods; one of them was built in Hungary.
Budapest underground works not only as public transport; it has also been used as film set the film Kontroll (that was presented during Cannes Film Festival, in 2003) was shot here, as well as some scenes of the famous movie Underworld!
