The unique Line 1 of the Budapest Metro System is just a perfect location for film and photo shoots. Opened personally by the Emperor of Austria and the King of Hungary, Franz Joseph I in 1896, it is is the oldest electric underground railway system on the European continent. Running along Andrássy Avenue, the line features beautiful, vintage stations. The wooden panels and dark green iron pillars of the stations, and their walls, covered with white and brown porcelain tiles made by the world famous porcelain manufacturer, Zsolnay, creates authentic turn-of-the-century atmosphere. The carriages are from the Sixties and are yellow, sweet, small and friendly. There are elegant wood and wrought iron benches at each station. This is an exceptional metro line, because nearly all of the cast iron railing exits are located on World Heritage sites.
