It's so run down that it has to be in Rome.

If not Roma - I'd say maybe Belgium. The style of the station is very French.

Hmm...New York would take the cake when it comes to run-down stations.

But this station is not in NY style. I'd put my money on some third world country. If not Tehran, then maybe somewhere in India?

if it's French, why couldn't it be in France? :-)

I would guess it isn't in regular service? An abandoned station. Maybe Charleroi?

I see 3rd rail here. I think Charleroi has never had 3rd rail, but overhead wires.

Metro is still very new to Indian cities. Before 2000 only one Indian city had Metro, and that was in Kolkata (operational from 1984). And more importantly most metro lines in India are elevated.

Alargule, may I ask why you mentioned Tehran, or India?
In Tehran the metro is extremly clean and well maintened, just like in almost all asian cities. Unlike in rich countries the subways are often considered as a national pride (Santo Domingo being a recent example) in "thirld world" countries.
Sorry for saying that but it sounds like some kind of prejudices.

That's your interpretation of the intentions behind my guess - which you're free to express, of course. However, you're reading too much into it; it was just a random guess.

No idea but it has an Eastern European atmosphere. I tried to analyze the ads on the wall, they seem to be about music bands, but it didn't help me.

No, it is quite a nice station - designed once you get to the bottom to look like ruins. Will link photos once off my phone.

The patch you see there is probably from water damage (there are a few patches like that). These cave like stations often have a little water leakage.

Oh, and because I had a bit of an advantage given I have lived in Stockholm, I turn the floor over to anyone who wants to post a photo to guess - first come first serve!

Ok. Sorry for my wrong interpretation then.
May I try one?
It should be an easy one:
