Victor Hugo (Paris Métro)

The clickable maps and pictures on this page show facts related to Victor Hugo (Paris Métro). Victor Hugo is a station on Paris Métro Line 2. It is named after the author Victor Hugo.

When first opened in 1900 as part of line 2 Nord, the platforms were built on the tight bend between Avenue Victor Hugo and Avenue Bugeaud. However, when new rolling stocks were introduced in 1931, the curve of the track was too tight for people to board and alight safely on these new trains. So, the station was rebuilt closer to Charles de Gaulle – Étoile (at the time named Étoile) on the straight stretch of track immediately after the curve.
