Whatever you call it, subway, metro, tube, it may have a bad reputation – unsafe, dirty, dark, smelly… but there are many subway stations around the world that are amazing pieces of architecture and art.
You will find these hidden underground gems in many different countries like Sweden, Russia, and Japan. In Stockholm, there is a station with exposed geological rock giving it a cave grotto-feel. In Saint Petersburg, you may think you just walked into a palace when you take the metro from the Avtovo Station, and in Tokyo, an architect who is also a sci-fi author, created a design with computer algorithms to give a station an alien-like atmosphere.
Read below about 12 different amazing subway stations around the world, places of interest at each one, and ticket prices.
