Happy 75th, Moscow Metro!

On May 15, 1935 the first metro stations were opened for daily use. The station pictured here, Chisitie Prudiy, was one of the original stations. The big white letters on top of the building (МЕТРО) spell metro in Russian. That's the original sign, from 75 years ago!

In the picture on the left, you see the metro doors, with stickers on them. These stickers are everywhere! I love them. It's a cartoon of the metro map. The sticker with 65 written on it was for Victory Day on May 9th.
In the picture on the right, you see the special retro metro card they were selling today. It was good for one ride.
