300 ft Under
300 ft Under is a project about Saint Petersburg subway.
The Russian public transit system is unique in many ways: it is the deepest in the world (by the average station depth) and arguably one of the most beautiful. The majority of its stations lie 72–282 ft (22–86 m) deep underground and some tunnels go as deep as 300 ft (100 m).
The system was founded in 1955. Each station has its own distinctive look reflecting the time and place where it was built, as well as its own unique name. The Soviet era left a Stalinist mark, while the stations built during the post-Soviet period have a more minimalist look. Modern stations explore a varierty of construction materials and architectural styles.
