"Welcome to the capital of the multipolar world": foreigners appreciate the new stations of the Moscow metro

On March 1, the last 9 stations of the Big Circle Line (BKL) of the Moscow metro were officially opened. BCL has become the world's largest metro construction project. It is a vicious circle of the subway, 70 km long, on which there are 31 stations.

BKL began to be built in 2011 and now 15 million people can use it. Prior to this, the world leader was the Second Ring Line of the Beijing Metro, 57 km long. A video appeared on the Web, and foreigners appreciated the new Moscow metro stations.

Absolutely amazing! In New York, we ride the subway with rats. Our trains keep derailing. At the same time, our government is not interested in spending money on its own people, but likes to harm other countries

@AJ-yt6ec commented.

My first ride on the Moscow metro was in 1991, when the metro was beautiful, comfortable, and some stations looked like museums. This new line looks very nice, more futuristic. I really want to come back to visit beautiful Moscow again

Cleanliness, efficiency, beauty, aesthetics, people dress decently and tastefully, beautiful girls everywhere and no ignorant immigrants from foreign countries. Love and respect from Switzerland!

– said @mistergumboeats5821.

The most sanctioned country, but still managed to open new metro stations! Marvelous! God bless Russia

- drew attention and wished @lovingjk.

The contrast in comparison with the cleanliness of the French subway is beyond words. I want to visit Russia, including small peripheral cities

@SAarumDoK noted.

What beautiful innovations you have made in the Moscow metro! I was there about 5 years ago and was very impressed with them… They are so well maintained and clean! With love from New Zealand

@derekdv remembered.

It's like 1000 years into the future compared to any western subway

- emphasized @vaninec.

Welcome to the capital of the new multipolar world

@Dachanordnung pointed out.

There are over 240 stations in the Moscow Metro, and all of them can be visited for as little as 50 rubles ($0,66). If you can fit in one day, of course. This is the cheapest tour in Moscow

@reverselife8219 added.

Just for the sake of contrast, and to make American tourists feel at home, you should make one station New York subway style - with dim lights, rats, graffiti, peeling paint and debris on the tracks, vagrants, thugs and gangs armed with knives. , billboards with peeling paper and very old mosaics with missing tiles

    The most interesting thing is that any Russian metro cannot be compared with foreign ones. Even at the stations of the Volgograd underground tram in the days of the World Cup it was cleaner than in Paris or somewhere else ...

    It would be great if not only in Moscow, the metro and other public transport developed as intensively... winked

    For me, people who stand without "shovels" - it's nice to look at them, even nostalgia breaks through a little, and these in a row - they solve all the problems of the world in phones!

    How deeply the virus of Western worship sits in us.
    Yes, I don't care what they say in Europe or America, about us, about our country, about our metro.
    Hate - good, envy - even better.
    On television, our presenters, like Papuans, spend whole days discussing who and what said in London, Berlin, Washington. All talk shows do just that.
    Only serfs can discuss their masters like that.
    Do we have little of our own deeds and problems or achievements?
    Or are we nobody without the West?!
    When the spirit of worshiping the West will disappear from the Russians.
    We deny all their so-called values, but continue to discuss them excitedly.
    Enough already.

    Europe has always been the center of fashion and civilization - in order not to see lice, they came up with beautiful powdered wigs. In order not to get dirty with slops and a toilet poured out of the window into the street, wide-brimmed hats were invented - it looked beautiful, especially on Boyarsky. At the very dawn of the British Empire, Windsor Castle had such a sewage system that it was half the city's stock ... And London smelled no better.

      In Europe, the first perfumes appeared in France after the Crusaders, distillation technology, and with it, floral waters and essential oils came to the Western world. Now the smell was an end in itself, it had only one task - to kill the stench exuded by dirty bodies and human waste that filled medieval cities. Hygiene procedures were not yet practiced there, the sewerage system did not work.

    This is true. The Russian metro is the most beautiful in the world. Thanks to Stalin and ordinary metro builders. Thanks to today's leaders.

    In Moscow, the grass is greener, and the sun is brighter, and money grows on trees, you leave the Moscow Ring Road and you are already in another country, where salaries are 2 or more times less, and the views are not the future, but returned back to history, where there are still cesspools ( natural fertilizer), gas cartridges, a primer, we can congratulate you - in Russia there is a "time machine"!
    Up there, back in the 90s, they knew that Moscow and other megacities are a showcase of Russia and foreigners will judge the whole country by them, and if salaries were low here, then maybe the presidents would not stay long, and chess would not be held in high esteem!
