Nice to see they've used quality materials. But I would've loved if they had combined minimalistic design with these kind of materials. At the moment it's a bit too tacky for my taste.

Russia seems to have the most beautiful metro stations in the world. It is also a surprise that there are posts in the local language, besides Russian. Does Tatar have an official status in Kazan?

It is official along with Russian one. Not only in Kazan, of course, but in the whole republic of Tatarstan

You should sort your priorities. The intruding water will sooner or later damage the whole structure which undermines the function of the station.

That is rather old photo. The station is restored and now looks much better.

The mistake seems to be to allow more room for private transport, instead of improving public transport.

5 new metro stations are planned to be built in next 4 years. There are intentions to extend the first line in both directions. The first extension is due to cross the Kazanka river with the station "Kozya Sloboda" ("Zarechnaya") in summer 2010. Both tunnels from "Kremlyevskaya" station are already constructed.



Сonstruction of the new tunnel has been started yesterday in Kazan in Aviastroitelny district. Tunnel driving has begun from a ditch of the future "Aviastroitelnaya" metro station to "Moskovskaya" station.
