The ornate decorations and antiquated train cars that we saw in the subway station in St Petersburg Russia looked like they came from another era (they actually reminded me of the antique subway cars that we saw at a museum in New York from the 50’s and 60’s). The subway station itself was ornately decorated, as these were called the Palaces of the People during the Soviet era.
The walls are decorated with reliefs showing workers hard at work and happy with the contributions that they are making to the common good. Just like our visit to Russia itself, stepping into the subway station in St Petersburg was a little like stepping into another world.
