Park Pobedy (Moscow Metro)


Park Pobedy (Moscow Metro)

Park Pobedy ( _ru. Парк Победы), translated as "Victory Park", is a station on the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya Line of the Metro. At 84 m underground, it is the deepest subway station in Moscow. It also contains the longest escalators in Europe, each one is 126 metres long and has 740 steps. The ride to the surface takes approximately three minutes.

Park Pobedy is actually a cross-platform complex with two separate, parallel platforms, though only the inner pair of tracks is used. When the construction was begun in 1986 (it was not completed until 2003), plans called for this to be a transfer to the future Solntsevo-Mitischenskaya Chordial line - construction of which is yet to start.

Trains arriving from Kievskaya stop at the northern platform to drop off passengers before going into reversal sidings and coming back to the southern platform to pick up passengers for the trip back. This is the only Metro station where all passengers board and exit trains in different locations. A further complication: only the southern (inbound) platform has an entrance vestibule, so passengers arriving at the outbound platform must change platforms before exiting.

The two platforms are of identical design but have opposite colour schemes, which creates a striking effect. The pylons of the outbound platform are faced with red marble on the transverse faces and pale grey marble on the longitudinal faces. The inbound platform is exactly the reverse. The station is adorned with two large enameled panels by Zurab Tsereteli depicting the Patriotic War of 1812 (at the end of the inbound platform) and the Great Patriotic War (on the outbound platform). The architects of the station were N.V. Shurygina and N.I. Shumakov.
