  1. crazy…but look at the “chandelier” style light fixtures and other details. One of the most beautiful undergrounds in the world, and one of the deepest (your ears pop on the escalators). It used to be illegal to take pictures in the subway (state secret, don’t you know).

  2. Ah, brings back happy memories.

    Of course, that’s winter, with all the coats on. Try it in summer, as crowded as that, in the second or third week of the hot water being off for maintenance. Adds a certain piquancy to the aroma!

    Happy days, happy days!

  3. It’s just not possible to be like that everyday… Probably a failure occurred that day… Otherwise people would get killed frequently by being stepped over…

  4. Trust me, on some stations it’s always like that during rush-hours. And people don’t get killed or even injured, because they’re used to it, they know how to deal with it. And shouting “bomb” wouldn’t work either, nobody would even notice that.

  5. Well I guess the station could be Prospekt Mira on the circle line. Yes, this station is very crowded, but I didn’t saw such a big crowd. Maybe a train was not working or something like this. Try to imagine, what happen it one of the metro trains brake during rush hour. They really work in two minutes rhytm.
