New station “Admiralteyskaya” appeared in St. Petersburg. It is expected to become one of the most popular stations among tourists due to its location near famous city attractions – the Winter Palace, St. Isaac's Cathedral and the Admiralty. The distance from the station to Nevsky Prospekt (Avenue) is about 100 meters.
Until now all these key landmarks of St. Petersburg were situated more than a kilometer from the nearest metro station and that caused inconveniences to tourists.
“Admiralteyskaya” was opened on the 5th line, between “Sportivnaya” and “Sadovaya”. It is the deepest station in St. Petersburg and one of the deepest in the world – it is located 86 meters underground due to the proximity to the Neva river.
