"The Shortest Metro In The World" Haifa Transportation Tip by edvin_br

Haifa Transportation: 19 reviews and 35 photos

Its called the "Carmelit" and its a kind of funicular altought most of the people consider it as Israel's only subway system.
It was built in the 50ies and , closed during the late 80ies and reopened in 1992. Today it includes 6 stations and passes from the downtown, trough Hadar and up to the Carmel.
One way ticket costs 5.5 NIS (1 Euro) ... anyhow you wont use it more than ones.. ;]

Type: Subway/Metro
