A little about St. Petersburg
The city of St. Petersburg is the most important economic, cultural and scientific center of Russia, as well as the largest transport hub. This is one of the most important centers of tourism in the Russian Federation.
The magnificent city is famous thanks to the Hermitage,The Russian National Library, the Mariinsky Theater, the Peter and Paul Fortress, St. Isaac's Cathedral, the Maly Drama Theater, etc. The construction of the metro plays an important role in attracting tourist flows to the Northern Capital of Russia.
Two stations - "Bucharest" and "International"this is a two-dimensional long-term construction. They began to build in 1994, but due to lack of sufficient funding, all work was suspended and frozen for a while. Construction was resumed only in 2005. We returned to the embodiment of the project, when the principle of economy changed dramatically, and the initial outline of the project was radically changed.
The metro station "Bucharest" (St. Petersburg): the origin of the name
The type of this object is pylon, similarly"Volkov" and "Bypass channel." The station is named after the same street - Bucharest, on which its lobby is located. Initially, other variants of names were offered: "University of Trade Unions", "Metrostroevskaya" and "Ekaterininskaya". However, in agreement with the experts, the governor approved the current name.
The metro station "Bucharest" - a deepmortgaging. We planned to build it up to 2007 single-vaulted, but due to financial difficulties, the pylon version of the station was still selected. Also earlier was the type (in 2004) of the withdrawal of this line to the surface after the station "Volkovskaya", but subsequently abandoned it.
They opened the metro station "Bucharest" (as well as "International") in December 2012. Thanks to the experience and talent of the architects, it is original and modern.
The ground vestibules of both stations are located in shopping centers on the ground floors.
There is a station on the 5th Frunzensko-Primorskiydirection between the "International" and "Volkov". This is the southern part of the city - the intersection of the streets of Bucharest and Salova, about 6700 meters southeast of Palace Square.
It is located between the "Volkovskaya" and"International" stations. This site was built about 20 years. For the whole period of downtime (since the 1990s), due to the lack of financing, the output was kept in a trouble-free condition.
Now all this is over. Departing from the metro station to the city, passengers get to the streets of Bucharest and Salova.
Very close are:
• Humanitarian University of Trade Unions.
• College (motor transport and electromechanical).
• STSI № 7.
• Hotel complex SPbGUP.
This station is the 66th in the account in the St. Petersburg metro.
