Pyongyang Metro Escalator

Pyongyang Metro Escalator

The Pyongyang Metro in North Korea is the deepest metro system in the world, doubling conveniently as a nuclear bunker. To reach the train platforms, it’s almost four minutes down on an escalator accompanied by revolutionary anthem and the noticeable silence of commuters. Here’s a snippet to set the scene.
