1 Mai metro station

Sector 1, Bucharest
|Platforms||2 - One island platform|
The station itself was opened on March 1, 2000, as part of Stage I of M4 line.
The station was built in a manner similar to Griviţa and Gara de Nord II, employing a wide central platform, a blue-grey, dark color scheme using black granite floors, blue and grey synthetic walls and chrome and aluminum metal insertions.
The name of the station was chosen based on the former name of Ion Mihalache Avenue — 1 Mai Avenue. This has proven controversial — firstly, because most inhabitants associate "1 Mai" with the 1 Mai Market located almost 3 km away from the metro station and secondly because the name 1 Mai Avenue had been already given to another street in Western Bucharest when the subway station opened. Incidentally, that avenue will also probably host a metro station in the future.
