Petersburg subway - the deepest in the world: as the city stands on a swamp, tunnels were digged in the thick Cambrian clay to a depth of 110 m.
The halls of old stations designed luxurious: marble and granite columns and bas-reliefs, mosaics and sculptures. There are several stations where the road separated from the platform with automatic sliding.
To orient in your own in the subway is very easy: for each station, there are many signs and circuit lines.
One travel costs 20 rubles, but you can save by buying a ticket to 10-50 trips or for a fixed period of time.
Metro - the most reliable transportation Petersburg, there are no traffic jams and accidents are extremely rare. However, during peak hours there is a serious jam at the entrance to the station and in the cars.
City subway stations are marked with the blue letter "M". They work from 5:30 a.m. until midnight. The last train leaves the end station at 12 midnight, so you might actually be able to catch it sometime between 12:00 and 12:30 at stations closer to the middle of the line. Subway trains run with the interval of 2 to 3 minutes, but from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. and from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on the weekday, the coaches may be overcrowded.
