Prague Metro – Coolest Subways – A Very 70’s 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 soviet-era 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 – one and a half million passengers a day wandering through these beautiful stations, know the Prague Metro is the fastest way to get around Prague. When you next visit Prague, make sure you get underground, and wait for a train in a very 70’s, very cool, space.
