Russian Metro Started Speak English
metro station "Avtovo", St.Petersburg

St. Petersburg has started campaign, according to which all information announcements in the underground will be duplicated in English during a week. The action aims to help tourists to navigate the Russian metro. The authorities have chosen the third line of the undeground for these innovations. It connects Vasilievsky Island with the centre and Nevsky district of the northern capital. In addition, two important ports are situated not far from its terminal stations. Every day the line is used by many overseas guests, who are not able clearly understand the information in Russian.

        If the action causes positive feedback, the initiative will be extended to other lines. 

      St.Petersburg is one of the most attractive places in Russia and the International Metro Week is directed to improve the hospitality of the city.

      In future all anouncements are going to be duplicated in other languages.
