In today’s post I’d like to introduce you to a number of facts about Moscow metro. One of the things I find interesting to view is a chronological metro scheme made by Alexey Goncharov. The first metro line in Moscow was put into operation in 1935 and currently Moscow metro system has over 180 stations.
Another interesting scheme executed by A.Goncharov as well is a map of Moscow metro tunnels depth. For a long time I could not get any information related to this topic. Though the depth was countable, e.g. one could count the number of lights along the escalator, I always wanted to know the exact figures. As you can see, the deepest metro station in Moscow Park Pobedy is located at 84 metres beneath the surface.
