Lehel tér metro station

Lehel tér is a station on the Budapest Metro M3 line. It opened on 30 December 1981 with the third phase of the M3 rollout. It was the first phase to run northbound from Deák tér on the line.[2] The station's name comes from the square under which it is located. Consequently, from 1981 to 1990, the station was called Élmunkás tér, after which the square and the station changed to Lehel tér for the Hungarian chieftain Lehel.[3]
