We visited the metro as a group during the morning peak hour rush. We were caught up in the huge crowd of people rushing to work, it was far more crowded than the New York subway or London underground.

The subway is sunk very deep below the surface. It took several minutes to travel down the escalator; a very steep decent. Once we reached the station we were amazed by the beauty of the decorations depicting scenes from the early days of Communism. The station was extremely busy with a train arriving every minute during our visit. There was only a very short interval to take clear photos, maybe only 15 seconds between trains.

Our group took the train for several stations. It certainly was an experience to remember.
