Arsenal, Champ de Mars, Saint Martin and all the tunnels a decent lady should see in Paris! Wine, nine, and run the tracks! Me and my two french metrotourists! THE “NINE” (that goes well with vodka)! Metro is a good way to get dirty! And it may be a good chance to add to this ...

Berlin exploration

Berlin exploration
Berlin! I loved it. East Berlin’s architecture is just like home. Lots of great bars, cheap beer, comtemporary art! But, well, since that’s an urbex page, I’ll just show some photos related to the subject. And you may check the World War II bunker in Berlin metro in a separate post, it was kind of locked ...

Underground Minsk (Belarus)

Underground Minsk (Belarus)

Saint-Petersburg Metro construction

Saint-Petersburg Metro construction
This one started in a bar in Saint Petersburg. The beer was perfect. We were dressed and ready, but had a really rough idea about the entrance.

Odessa! (Ukraine)

Several large systems are outside the city. The Odessa catacombs have been the hiding place for partisans during WWII. In the part below the ...
