Climb Aboard the Virtual Metro Tour

Прогулки по метро(Walks on the Metro) I found this interesting virtual tour of Russian Metro systems this morning. Perhaps someone else has already written about this page; if so, I haven't found it. I've seen the famous Bee Flowers panoramic photos (which are great) but this has more of a regular feel to it - and covers almost all the stations.

It not only has Moscow Metro stations, but also St. Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, and Samara metro stations as well. You can also compare stations with the same name, but located in each of these different cities. Some of his descriptions are incomplete, but the website is well worth the time to browse through the images.

Still, nothing instills that same feeling as entering the Moscow Metro for the first time. I remember descending ...
_________down ...
_______________down ...
______________________down ... amongst crowds of people - and feeling like I was a mouse that just entered a maze.
