The grandmother of the metro(if the London tube is the grandfather): The Budapest (yellow)line M1 -the Millenial Underground (Milleniumi Földalatti Vasút-MillFAV). Built for the 1896 celebrations of the 1000th years existence of the country.

I was always quite fond of Embankment Station in London. Here are a few photos.

It's located under this station, Charing Cross. Actually, just to the right of the bridge and by the river.
