Metro Narvskaya

На́рвская (Metro station in Saint Petersburg, Russia)

I had a list of things I wanted to see while in Saint Petersburg, Russia earlier this month. The metro stations wasn’t one of them, but with two days of lousy weather in a row, with the first day already spent at an unplanned stop (The Hermitage Museum), I needed to find something not outdoors that wouldn’t have me standing around in another museum. Turns out there is a museum of sorts, that allows sitting much of the time, that’s deep underground in St. Petersburg. The cost was nice too (45 rubles or about US $.70).

The Soviets really did a number on their metro stations in the 1950s. Each is unique and many are rather decadent. I set out for the “two best” in Saint Petersburg. Along the way I jumped out at several unplanned stops that looked amazing or interesting as well. The Narvskaya Station (На́рвская) was one of those not considered to be one of the best, but wow was it fascinating.

I’m waiting in the Prague airport (along with several bands and hundreds of festival goers) for a day of planes and airports. I feel brutally assaulted as I’m operating on three hours of sleep and probably about 15 hours of total sleep over the past three nights, not to mention long days of shows from 10 a.m. until 3 a.m. Actually I never saw a 10 a.m. show or made it past 2 a.m. but still…

In the “useless facts that nobody cares about except me” category we have the fact that last month Flotsam and Jetsam broke my record for longest time between seeing a band live at almost 29 years. The record was short lived as yesterday Metal Church became the new record holder at over 32 years. They were great and well worth the wait. Hopefully it won’t be that long before the next time.
