Arsenala Metro Station in Kyiv is the deepest in the world at 105 metres which is the equivalent of 346 feet. It derives the name from a Soviet Arsenal factory. When you first descend down it's a real shock to the system due to the speed, height, and drop, but a unique experience that must be experienced. You will see locals strolling onto it at first but if you are a little nervous just take your time and keep to the right!
The black and white images just gives the network more iconic and retro feel.
Take a trip to Osokorky Metro Station where you will see magnificent artwork designed by a team of international talent (from Ukraine to Brazil).

Make your way upstairs for a different photographic view, and if you are lucky enough you will be able to capture both trains arriving in unison.
