Deák Ferenc tér is the only transfer station for the M1, M2, and M3 lines of the Budapest Metro. It is located under the eponymous city square in central Budapest, the capital city of Hungary.Owing to its direct transfer connection between all three metro lines and its downtown location, it is one of the busiest stations in the system.HistoryThe original station, on the M1 line, was constructed with two side platforms, at a depth of 2.7 metres by cut-and-cover. It was originally named Gizella tér. In 1952, during the building of Line 2, a new station was built for Line 1. The old station was closed, nowadays it gives place to Underground Railway Museum.The station for the M2 line, which opened in 1970, was bored at a depth of 38 metres and consists of an island platform serving its two tracks.The M3 station was the northern terminus for the first segment of the line completed in 1976 to Nagyvárad tér and has switches and a pullback track in a middle tunnel at its northern end. This track descends underground and curves more than 180° west to join the pullback track on the M2 line. This non-revenue connection tunnel was the means of supplying rolling stock to line M3 from 1976 until it was completed to Kőbánya-Kispest and the adjacent new depot in 1980.ConnectionsBus: 9, 15, 16, 100E, 105, 115Trolleybus: 72 (only at weekends)Tram: 47, 48, 49 Make Deak Ferenc Square part of your personalized Budapest itinerary using our Budapest trip itinerary maker tool .

  • A busy square and park, containing several attractions and also a small Christmas market, along with street food.  more »
  • Deak Square is the heart of Budapest. It is the intersection of metro M1, M2 and M3 lines, and is home to many properties, restaurants and shops in the surrounding area. That's why there's so many people passing by, and there's a lot of people at night who don't risk it, but there are a lot of pubs around, so drunk people have to be a little careful. If you're looking for a place to stay around Deak Square, you'll find it very convenient to get to budapest's attractions. If you're going to Budapest, you'll probably stop by this deak square.
