The most spectacular meters in the world

When you visit a city -especially if we are in a different country than ours, in another latitude and with another culture-, everything catches your attention. Not only are we attracted to monuments or more touristy places of interest, we also like (at least to me) to see the flow of daily life in the streets, to walk through the areas less geared towards tourism …

In this sense, riding the subway or the bus in the cities you visit can be quite an experience, and even more so when some of these means of transport are authentic centers of tourist interest, as it happens to the subways of many cities. Today we review the most spectacular meters in the world.

By beauty, dimensions or age

The metro is an indispensable transport system in large cities. What would Madrid be without the metro! Or New York, Paris or London… How could people move through these colossal cities without collapsing them! Well, these extremely essential means of mobility are also an underground showcase of the very essence of the city.

Like the New York subway, for example, which is the largest in the world. It has more than 468 stations and is used by no less than 5 million users every day. In addition to the normal trains, there are some express trains that stop only at some stations.

The oldest in the world in the London Underground, from 1863. It has 12 lines and more than three million people travel every day. The one in Paris , in the Art Nouveau style, is also very old. Its 200 kilometers of lines connect any point of the city with the center. And, on the other side of the world, the Tokyo subway is also curious. Its famous professional pushers help the huge number of travelers to get into the carriages.

And in Spain, Madrid has the second largest metro in Europe and the third oldest in the world (1919). A curiosity: the wagons circulate on the left, and this is because it was designed by English engineers.
