You will see that metro can be not only functional, but also very beautiful! Mosaics, different kinds of marble, stained glass and lots of imagination – that’s what the metro stations in St Petersburg are like. The first metro line in St Petersburg was built in 1955. Originally the first metro stations were also means of propaganda that glorified the achievements of soviet people. Then after the death of Stalin the stations became functional just like everywhere. But now they are reviving the idea of beautiful metro stations and you will see some modern examples as well and will be able to compare them with the old ones.
