Prague Metro – Photo Friday
Prague Metro – the world’s coolest subway. Much like the Zizkov TV Tower that looms ominously over Prague, interiors of the city’s metro line subway stations definitely have that communist-era, modernist, architectural influence. Dimpled aluminium panels are applied to the curved station walls and ceilings, utilising a palette of warm anodised colours, varying from one station to the next. Incredibly slick. Finished with polished marble walls, this could quite possibly be the coolest series of metro stations on earth. Form, and function, over one and a half million passengers a day wander through these beautiful stations, knowing that the Prague Metro is the fastest way to get around the city.

PS, all of the communist-era architecture featured on Yomadic, is right here.
