>_ Budapest Metro

Budapest has some incredibly beautiful metro stations. Especially the new M4 line is really well designed and feels more modern than most underground lines you would find elsewhere in Europe. The other lines are significantly older (the Budapest metro is the oldest electrified underground railway system on the European continent in fact) and look like straight out of a Wes Anderson movie. Here are some pictures I took during the last 130 minutes I spent underground.
