RET Metro Celebrating 50 Years in Rotterdam, Netherlands

From February 9th to 13th 2018 you could visit the first ever metro carriage in Rotterdam, Netherlands. This Dutch metro first opened in 1968 by princessΒ Beatrix en prince Claus. The length of the metro line in 1968 was only 5.9km long, making it the shortest in the world at the time. These days the Rotterdam metro lines are more than 100km long.

The RET had organised a special metro pop-up museum to visit at Blaak station, so we couldn’t resist to visit!

Here are some of the photos we took during our visit!
