Kyiv Around ALMA School: Arsenalna Metro Station
Did you know that the deepest metro station in the world is here in Kyiv? Did you know it is only a 15 minute walk from ALMA School?
Arsenalna Station is about half a century old and indeed holds the world record in depth, going down 105.5 metres (346 ft). The station therefore sports 2 escalators that take 5 minutes to ride. The hall between the escalators was actually built above the ground and then lowered to its target area — an unprecedented architectural technique. The station's design itself is unusual to Kyiv, being more similar to underground stations in London.
