I remember one of the stations I used in Seoul had the cave decor as well. It's a nice change from the typical functional architecture.

New York - 24 hour, air conditioning and heating

Paris - Great fronts to some of the stations, many lines and large, historic
Madrid's metro network isnt as small as you say, it has the 6th largest underground network so I wouldnt say it's small...

Madrid's metro isn't small, that's obvious. It's actually a very extensive network which is well-serving as much the center than the suburban areas. That's not the case of Paris metro system which is fantastic in the center but very limited outside of it. Anne-Marie Idrac, the CEO of the company managing Paris Metro (RATP), declared recently that the evolution of the network was 50 years late compared to the evolution of the city. Something which is completely right. Some areas around Paris aren't even served by any rail line at all, such as Thiais, Bondy, L'Haÿ-les-Roses, Clichy-sous-Bois or Stains, and guess what ? It's also the most difficult areas of the agglomeration...

There are 21 independent underground rail lines under Paris, all serving in their dedicated tunnels, I haven't realized it earlier but that's actually not far to be a record. On the 210 km of Paris metro, more than 190 km are underground. If you add to this the nearly 70km of the central RER network which is also underground and in direct connection with multiple subway stations, you get about 260km of underground rails in Paris area. That's not so bad.

The only thing we need now is to extend a bit those lines deeper in the "proches banlieues"... but I guess nothing really serious will be made untill a Greater Paris would be created.

Madrid's modern rail never ceases to amaze me. This city must surely be an inspiration to the rest of Europe.

Fantastic photo's!

When it comes to subway station, I like HK better. Especially the MTR station with the exception of the Tung Chung line stations. MTR's stations has a very Asian feel to it!

And in a way is very colorful!

MTR (Hong Kong)

Moscow's subway stations looks like palaces but Pyongyang, though not as original and innovative as Moscow has the same concept as well.

Pyongyang Metro (North Korea)

Pyongyang's subway may not even be functional at all. North Korea is so isolated that there is talk the subway doesn't even work, but when foreigners visit they open sections of it to show that it may be working. The scale of architecture is much smaller than Moscow, but obviously they modeled it after the Soviets.
