The Pravda website has a gallery entitled ‘World’s Ten Amazing Subway Stations’. It includes photos of Komsomolskaya, its North Korean clone in Pyongyang and the disused City Hall in New York. More modern designs are included too, the amazing cave station in Stockholm – complete with cave paintings, Norman Foster’s futuristic design in Bilbao, and the sinking railway carriage at Bockenheimer Warte in Berlin.

Sadly my own personal favourites on the London Underground – Earls Court, Sudbury Town and Uxbridge do not get a look in.
