  escalator to the metro
by Leipzig

I read in a book that St. Petersburg's metro is the deepest subway in the world. Now I know what this means. We entered the metro station and saw the beginning of an escalator but no end. We stepped on it and were carried down, and down and down and.... It took over one minute.

Finally at the end we saw billions of people but no metro. We were pushed to the left, then to the right, back and forth and so on. Finally we were pushed into one of the metros and couldn't budge inside. It was not easy to escape the crowds.

Admission is 7 Rubels (0.20 ?)
