Metro line 1, often called the "Foldalatti" (Underground) was opened in 1896, and is one of the oldest electric underground railways in the world. . It was recently lovingly renovated, and on each station platform you will find display-panels with historic photos and background information (in English!) about the local area.
If you are a train buff, you can take time to view examples of the original rolling-stock (even more cramped!) on display at the "Foldalatti Muzeum", appropriately housed - though rather hidden away - in a redundant section of tunnel at the Deak ter metro station in the city centre.
The Oktogon Station, located just a 5-minute stroll from the apartment, is a useful navigational point-of-reference for the new visitor. It marks the junction of two busy traffic-arteries: the so-called "Nagykorut" (large ring-road, sometimes translated as "Grand Boulevard"), with its gleaming new-model trams; and the elegant tree-lined avenue, Andrassy ut, which leads north from the central Deak ter.
Be warned, however, that "on the ground", in terms of actual street-signs (and on street-maps), the "Nagykorut" in fact has a number of separate names, for the various sections belonging to different city districts. In this case, the name to bear in mind is "Terez korut".
