The Moscow metro is not only the fastest, most convenient and safest way to get from one end of the metropolis to the other, it is also a great architectural monument and a huge layer of our history, showing how views and values have changed over almost a hundred years. The first metro line began operating in 1935. The underground railway line stretched at that time from the Sokolniki station to the Park Kultury station. The junction diverted part of the trains to the Smolenskaya station. At that time, no one even thought about the Bratislavskaya metro station.
Capital of Slovakia
The Slovak Republic is a small state on the territory of the European Union, whose lands were settled by the Slavs in the fifth century AD, during the Great Migration. The country gained independence on January 1, 1993, once again separating from Czechoslovakia. The capital of the state, the city of Bratislava, was founded in the same fifth century. For one hundred and forty-three years, since 1541, it has been the capital of Hungary. The population of the city is less than half a million. From a geopolitical point of view, Bratislava is the only city in the world thatIt directly borders on two other states: Hungary and Austria. Moscow, as well as Saratov, as well as Ukrainian Kyiv, are twin cities of the Slovak Bratislava.
The Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya line of the Moscow Metro became the first metro line to be fully put into circulation after the fall of the Soviet Union. Seventeen stations are part of it, and it began to be designed back in 1978. The Moscow metro map indicates it in light green color. Two traction units serve this direction with rolling stock: the Pechatniki electric depot and (since 2005) the Brateevo reversible electric depot. To date, this line is the most promising in terms of development. The projected Dmitrovsky radius will add about eight or nine more stations to the branch and bring its terminus with turnaround dead ends almost to the city border, at the intersection of Dmitrovskoye highway and the Moscow Ring Road.
At the junction of three young districts of the city of Moscow: Lyublino, Kuzminki and Maryino - at the end of December 1996 a new metro station was opened. This was a pleasant New Year's gift for residents of these and nearby districts, since previously they could only get to the city center by surface public transport until it intersects with adjacent branches of the metropolitan subway. The Bratislavskaya metro station got its name in honor of the Russian-Slovak friendship of peoples and warm relations between the two capitals. Initially, at the stageproject, it was planned to assign the name "Krasnodonskaya" to the station, after the name of the nearby street.
Soviet architects A. V. Orlov and A. Yu. Nekrasov gave the station an unforgettable entourage, different from all other stops. Bratislavskaya is a shallow station. The columned two-bay structure is decorated with hand-molded medallions of the Bratislava Castle and the Devin Fortress, a republic friendly to Russia. At the ends of the station there are also panels depicting the Moscow City Hall and the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. The floor of the station is laid out in a checkerboard style with black and white marble. The seemingly weightless walls of light, light marble with a subtle hint of blue gently reflect the light from the ceiling light guides. The center of the hall of the Bratislavskaya metro station is deprived of the pillars of the ceiling vault of the station, since it was planned to leave this place for a transfer for a hypothetically possible second ring metro line. At present, it has been decided to launch a branch of the second ring through the Pechatniki metro station.
Underground is faster
The city's public high-speed transit transport plays a huge role in the life of modern megacities. It allows you to save time on working days, moving from one end of the capital to the other, bypassing traffic difficulties on highways loaded with cars. The development of the subway is a top priority for the leaders of the city economy. For free movement and resolution of the traffic collapse in the streets, everya microdistrict of a large city should be connected to the system of movement on underground electric trains. And this rule is obligatory for every metropolis with more than a million inhabitants, especially for such large residential areas as the capital of our Motherland, the city of Moscow. Metro "Bratislavskaya" plays an important role in the structure of the metropolitan subway.
Metro for everyone
If you look at the map of the capital, you can not only be amazed by the diversity of its residential and public structure, the presence of green spaces and water bodies, but also notice how widely the metropolitan metro has spread its multi-colored network of lines. Almost every district of the city is covered by a stopping point, and those places that do not yet have such an advantage will soon gain it. It is enough just to look at the perspective maps of urban transport development. What is there just not there: new branches and metro lines, a second underground ring, a circular branch of high-speed trams of a wide radius, light metro lines and a monorail transport system, the Moscow ring railway and suburban electric trains with transfer stops to metro stations, integrated into one transport and passenger net. The Moscow metro is recognized as one of the best in the world, has won several awards, including during the Soviet era, and in terms of intensity of use it ranks fifth in the world, after China's Beijing and Shanghai, Korea's Seoul and Japan's Tokyo.
Close and convenient
The metro station "Bratislavskaya" is located successfully and conveniently withtraffic point of view. Despite the fact that another station, Maryino, was built nearby, many residents of the Lyublino district use Bratislavskaya, as it is closer and more conveniently located. Most ground public transport routes bring passengers to this station. Not far from it is the platform "Pererva" of the Kursk direction of the railway. The railway line itself separates the Maryino district from the southern part of Pechatniki located behind it and the isolated Kuryanovo district. Residents of these territories often use public transport to get to the Bratislavskaya or Maryino metro stations.
Everything is near
The Bratislavskaya stop is a metro station located on Pererva Street and allowing passengers to get to Bratislavskaya Street and Myachkovsky Boulevard. Many residents and guests of the capital use it to get to the L153 shopping complex, which houses the Auchan hypermarket. Children and their parents prefer to spend their weekends in the Maryino water park, which is next to the metro. Myachkovsky Boulevard will lead everyone to the Ice Palace and the amusement park. A stone's throw from the lobby, a cozy park named after Artem Borovik with green spaces and comfortable benches awaits its guests. Many catering establishments have been built around the Bratislavskaya metro station, such as Yakitoria, Il Patio and Chaikhona, where you can eat delicious food and spend time with friends.
Each metro station that opens its doors to passengers,very important in the complex system of urban transport. The Bratislavskaya station was no exception. It organically fits into the surrounding infrastructure and not only serves as a transport hub, but is also a historical monument of architecture and friendship between the two Slavic peoples.
