This exceptional tunnel system was built in the 1970s as part of one of Hungary’s central train stations. Back then the station’s infrastructural development was the most modern in Central Europe, it has hardly been renovated since, providing an authentic aged and grimy sight. The underpass is approximately 245 meters long and provides underground connection from each side of the train tracks to five public transport platforms. Its unusual width enables cars and other vehicles to easily use the tunnel, which is accessible by the ramps at all of the entrances. The entrances’ simple and yet unusual geometric designs provide stylish imagery for film productions. Underground, the dark and dirty tunnel is often used by cars and passersby to reach the platforms, who at some spots have graffitied onto the pale yellow walls. The underpass’ eerie atmosphere makes it ideal for spy films or projects set in urban outskirts.
