Metro

by Adrian on June 30, 2012

The nearest metro station is 20 minutes walk away from Krestovskiy marina, so in 3/4 hour we can be in the centre of the city.

The metro is a real experience. It is very clean, punctual and costs about 25p for any journey.  Buy tokens from the kiosk – we found the digital method of communicating in Russian worked well here (hold your fingers up to indicate how many tokens you want to buy). In some stations there are amazing mosaic artworks.

Due to the ground composition (i.e. swamp), the metro is very underground. The escalators are about 100m long and take about 3 minutes to travel down.
