Montreal Metro
Look in front of you

To my American and global readers : maybe some of you know Montreal for its European flair untypical for a North American city; maybe some of you know Montreal because of the Expo 67, or the Olympics, or even for its poutine (French fries with gravy sauce and cheese), for those of you who have tried it. But behind a seemingly ordinary (or not-so-ordinary) French city in Canada lies one of North America’s most technologically advanced subway systems, the Métro de Montreal (Montreal Metro). No, this isn’t the New York Subway. Maybe there is a lot less people, but the stations itself are much, much larger and each of them were individually designed by a different architect. This makes that every station has its own unique architectural style, a bit like the Moscow Metro, but in more modern. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
