Question to AlekseyVT: Is it so easy to access a metro station that still is open. Do you have a special permission or is it your job to write about the metros construction.
I like to follow all threats of russian metro. It's fantastic.

No, I do not have permission. It's just my hobby.

My role is very modest. I just collect photos and videos, which were taken by different people, and load all it into one thread (with translation of information into English). The real work is the work of the authors of these photos. You can see their original posts on the links at the bottom of each photo.

There are several ways to make these photos during construction:
1) Amateur photos from the ground or nearest buildings (foundation pit);
2) The photos from official reports in mass-media;
3) Underground photos, which were made by the builders;
4) Underground photos, which were made illegally by the independent bloggers (so-called "diggers");
5) Underground photos, which were made by the bloggers with official permission (like Russos or Gelio - see last post about "Chkalovskaya" station).

I want to commend St Petersburg metro for styling the Latin transliteration in English (Admiralteyskaya) and not in Finn/German (Admiraltejskaja).

ADMIRALTY:

Admiralty Board was a supreme body for the administration of the Imperial Russian Navy in the Russian Empire, established by Peter the Great on December 12, 1718.

The responsibilities of the Admiralty Board had been changing throughout its history. It supervised the construction of military ships, ports, harbors, and canals and administered Admiralty Shipyard. The Admiralty Board was also in charge of naval armaments and equipment, preparation of naval officers etc. The first president of the Admiralty Board was Count Fyodor Apraksin. In 1720, the Admiralty Board published a collection of naval decrees called "A Naval Charter On Everything That Has To Do With Good Management Of A Fleet At Sea", authored by Peter the Great himself among other people. In 1802, the Admiralty Board became a part of the Ministry of the Navy. Along with the Admiralty Board, there was also the Admiralty Department in 1805-1827 with the responsibilities of the Chief Office of the Ministry. In 1827, the Admiralty Board was turned into the Admiralty Council, which would exist until the October Revolution of 1917.

The Admiralty Board used to be headquartered in the Admiralty building in St. Petersburg. The magnificent Empire Style edifice lining the Admiralty Quay was constructed to Andreyan Zakharov's design between 1806 and 1823. Located at the western end of the Nevsky Avenue, with a gilded steeple topped by a golden weather-vane in the shape of a small ship, it is one of the city's most conspicuous landmarks. The spire is the focal point of old St. Petersburg's three main streets - Nevsky Avenue, Gorokhovaya Street, and Ascension Avenue - underscoring the importance Peter I placed on Russia's Navy.

Vladimir Nabokov, famed writer and native of St. Petersburg, wrote a short story in May 1933 entitled "The Admiralty Spire."

Admiralty building (1806-1823, Andreyan Zakharov):
