Prague metro celebrates 30th anniversary

Thousands of people have been attending an open-day at Kacerov metro station, to mark the 30th anniversary of the opening of the Prague underground rail system. The first Prague metro line ran from Kacerov to Sokolovska station, which is now known as Florence, in 1974. In those days there was only one seven-kilometre metro line with nine stations. Since then the system has been expanded to three lines covering around 50 kilometres.

Sunday also saw an open-day at Prague Castle, with thousands of people availing of the opportunity to see parts of the Castle not normally open to the public.
