Millennium Underground

Millennium Underground, originally uploaded by andreaban2009.
The Millennium line was the first underground to be built in Continental Europe. It runs under Andrassy Avenue. It is the second oldest underground in the world. The first being the London underground.And it is a UNESCO heritage site.This line ( also known as Line 1) has been in operation since 1896.

The word Millennium signified the 1000th year the Magyar tribe settled in Hungary. The picture is of one of the stops along Andrassy Avenue. I'll post another picture of the metro above ground.  It's pretty silent as it chuggs along the road. I saw at least 2 cruising  along.  I didn't get the chance to sit in it. NO Forinths and they do not accept Euros and I wasn't too keen on changing money because we had such limited time here.
