THE BEAUTIFUL MOSCOW METRO

Welcome to the most beautiful and most accessible museum in Moscow - the Metro. The Moscow Metro is one of the busiest underground systems in the world with a daily ridership of over 9 million people. The Moscow Metro is the world record-holder for on-time departures and arrivals. According to the Moscow transport department, its accuracy is 99.99 percent and the average train during rush hour is every 90 seconds. The metro is so beautiful that 44 of the nearly 200 stations are listed as cultural heritage sites. During World War Two, the Moscow metro became bomb-proof shelters, like in London. Half a million people found shelter underground, and people slept in the carriages of trains that were parked overnight in stations. When airstrikes were especially frequent, there were shops and hairdressing salons in operation at the stations, and for example the Kurskaya metro station had a working library. There is a legend concerning the appearance of the circle line, which wasn’t originally planned. The myth states that during a meeting, Stalin put his cup of coffee on the metro map leaving a brown circle around the city center. Stalin showed the circle to the builders and ordered the construction of such a line. This is why the line is brown. Around 26 metro stations were renamed after the collapse of the Soviet Union as well as names of streets, squares and avenues around the city. Main reason for that was, of course, letting go of the Communist past. Like the Oyster card in London or the Octopus card in Hong Kong, Moscow has the Troika Card. The Troika is a contactless reusable card designed to pay for public transport in Moscow. Passengers using the Troika card can pay for their trips by bus, trolleybus, or tram for 31 rubles and the Moscow Metro for 32 rubles. It's also possible to get unlimited cards, like mine which is 5000 rubles for 3 months. If you’re using the metro in moscow, I highly recommend the yandex metro app. It is an interactive metro map of Moscow which calculates your time and route. To help those who are visually impaired, as well as people just lost, the metro announcers voice changes. On a journey towards the centre, a man’s voice is used. While going away, a woman’s. As always, thanks for watching, and please subscribe to my channel for more information about Moscow! Music by NOWË: https://soundcloud.com/nowemusic/ insta: @jonnytickle
