Brief History

The history of Petersburg metro foundation dates back to 1893 when the engineer Peter Balinsky worked out the first project of the Petersburg underground railway, but the actual decision of constructing the metro network was made only in 1930. In the course of 11 years the pre-construction works were carried out, but due to the World War II the erection of the first metro stations was set up only in 1945. On 15th November, 1955 the first metro line - Kirovsko-Vyborgskaya Linia, consisting of 8 stations was opened. 22 000 sq.m. of marble, 10 000 sq.m. of granite was used for decorating the vestibules and platforms, and more than 700 lamps, lanterns, chandeliers and spotlights adorned the first metro stations. Since that time the city metro system has been developing dynamically, its history is full of fascinating facts and figures and nowadays there are 58 stations forming four lines.
