Overview

The newest line began its construction in 1979. It entered operation 6 years later, but with only 7 stations being operational. It ran from Florenc to Smíchovské Nádraží with total length being only about 5 kilometres.

Interesting is, that third section of the line was finished before the second one. It was only 3 stations (Radlická, Jinonice, Nové Butovice) but the total distance between them was equal to the first section of the Line B.



The second section was finished 2 years later and was half a kilometer shorter than the third one. It added 4 new stations to the system. Fifth section introduced 5 new stations (Hůrka, Lužiny, Luka, Stodůlky and Zličín).

The last one to be finished was a fourth section of the line. Interesting fact is, that the rails are running on top of each other, not next to each other. Length of new section is 6.3 kilometers and runs from Českomoravská to Černý Most. It contains 5 stations.

By finishing the fourth section, Line B became the longest of the three.
