It does if you traveled threw the underground part.

London - travel almost everyday. Can never get bored of the system be it the old victorian 19th century sub surface parts to the polished steel and glass cathedral like 21st Century newest parts. Finally getting a nice bit of investment in to it. No real new tube lines planned though

Pairs - Has its own charm and character. Like London some stations require you to walk a fair bit to get to platforms etc which is annoying especially with luggage. Trains were frequent and stops a plenty. I Remember travelling on one line where it was possible to open doors BEFORE train stopped - didnt particularly feel safe to lean against doors on that one, though the parisians didnt seem to mind.

Prague - Perhaps one the few positive legacies from communism. More lines and more interchanges would really enhance the otherwise clean, reliabe - albeit characterless system.

Budapest - Had an interesting sub surface tram like line that I think could work well in many other similar sized cities looking to building light rail systems whilst moving away from the traditional on street and slower tram models. The other lines reminded me of the ones in Prague. DONT board trains without tickets - you WILL get caught 7 times out of 10. Could do with some ticket barriers if you ask me.
