Subway Train «Reading Moscow»

Author: atleeThere is a very unusual train running on the Koltsevaya Line, which is a 20-km-long ring line connecting all the radial lines of the subway system in Moscow. It is called "Reading Moscow", because every coach is full of illustrations and fragments from different fairy-tales, stories and poems on the walls inside. Under the ceiling there are quotations and wise aphorisms by classical authors of the Russian and foreign literature. It will be interesting to go for a ride on such a train not only for adults, but especially for children. I enjoyed to watch passengers reading the texts and looking at the pictures. Parents were reading their children fragments from well-known fairy-tales. Some passengers were taking photos of the train and writing some of the quotations in their notebooks not to forget them.


In the train "Reading Moscow" you will see the famous quartet from the fable by the Russian best known fabulist I. Krylov; Emelya riding on the oven in the snowy field from a Russian fairy-tale; the characters of the novel "Home of the Gentry" by Ivan Turgenev; "Timur and His Squad" from Arkady Gaidar's book; Roly-Poly (the character of a Russian nursery tale) and the inattentive man from Basseinaya Street (from the book by the famous Russian children's poet - Samuil Marshak).

Besides, you will find bears on a wooden bicycle, an elephant with a pair of glasses on and a telephone receiver, ladybirds on the walls in the train.

The most pleasant thing about the train is that it doesn't have any advertisement.
