Top Ten Metro Stations

Subways are great feats of design and engineering.  Few of us as commuters rushing to our destination or a tourist negotiating a strange city, see them as art. However ‘tube’ stations can be art galleries too.  There is real beauty to be found in the architecture of metro stations, and moments of inspiration to be had inside of them, from the songs of the subway busker to large-scale artworks that fill the space. With thanks to picks from Babbel and the Metro Project  – here’s a new look at some very under estimated destinations. Proving once and for all that” it is better to journey than to arrive”.
