Nevsky Prospekt (Nevsky Avenue) Metro Station
Nevsky Prospekt (Nevsky Avenue) is a station on the Moskovsko-Petrogradskaya Line of Saint Petersburg Metro. The staircases, designed to accommodate a large stream of passengers, lead from the street level down to a wide, spacious vestibule. The architectural décor of the station was designed to utilize, as fully as possible, every meter of space. The configurations of the pylons and vaulted ceilings of the underground hall reiterate the form of tubing rings – structural elements of the station. The lower parts of the pylons are covered with horizontal ribbing of polished aluminum. The walls of the train tunnels are faced with red-lined glass tiles.
The station has two entrances. In 1971, a vestibule was opened in the first floor of the newly rebuilt Engelhardt Mansion at the corner of Griboyedov Canal Embankment and Nevsky Prospect Avenue.
