Most spectacular stations of St Petersburg underground. Design, history, personalities
Entering the St Petersburg metro, you can easily confuse the station with a magnificent palace hall or lobby of a five-star hotel. This is not surprising! In Soviet times, subway stations were built as palaces for ordinary people. You have a wonderful opportunity to get acquainted with all the details of the decor, architectural features, the history of the creation of stations, the history of the city and its outstanding figures immortalized in the design of the subway rooms. Dozens of types of marble and granite, floor lamps, sconces, chandeliers, bronze bas-reliefs, mosaics and decorative panels, sculptures and busts, crystal and glass decorate the "underground palaces". Eight stations of the Saint Petersburg subway are recognized as objects of cultural heritage. Welcome to the world's deepest subway according to the average depth of the tunnels.
