Tigers and leopards – what do they do in Moscow metro?
In Primorye 27 of September is celebrated as The Amur Tiger’s Day. And on this day in 2015 the themed train called “Striped Express” came out at Lyublinskaya line of the Moscow metro. This is the joint progect of the Russian Geographical Society, The Amur Tiger Center, the ANO Far Eastern Leopards and the Moscow Metro. The aim of the project is to promote two endangered species – Amur Tiger and Far Eastern leopard. Both inhabit Primorye region of southeastern Russia. It is important to form careful attitude to these wild cats and their habitat.
The train interior is decorated with 3D pictures of flora and fauna of the Far East Taiga. Each cabin represents a specific season.
I had a chance to travel in this beautiful train several times – and to take some photos!
