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.

See this jewel of Kyiv metro for yourself and, while you are in the neighborhood, drop by ALMA School to have a nice cup of tea and learn some Russian or Ukrainian as foreign! :)
