I can't believe that some people think that London is the best metro system in the world!!! What a lack of honesty, London underground is shit!! I guess those people have never travelled abroad (unless they are just nationalist, which is a possibility).

I agree with you I don't know why so many people think that London has the best metro system. It's surely the oldest and the largest thats a fact but not the best thats also a fact. When i travelled to London i didn't get taxi to my hotel because i was really excited to travel in London underground because thats also one of the one thing you have to do when you are in london. I will say even Athens metro is better then london.

Madrid is the best metro system in Europe. The best in the world? I don't have a clue, I don't know Tokyo or Hong Kong subways so I can't compare.

In Europe? By what criteria? Architecture? Technologies? or something else?

I did not vote NYC as having the best subway system, but the cars are cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and you can ride 24 hours a day. One thing I hated about the European systems is that they all seemed to close around midnight. And, if I remember right. so did Tokyo's and those in Russia. To me. as a tourist, those were always big minuses.

Indeed Copenhagen's is attractive.

But my top five would be London (history, efficiency, extensive), Tokyo (high technology, extensive, efficient), Paris, Hong Kong, Singapore. New York is extensive but looses points in attractiveness.
