Alternative metro maps

Hello! My name is Valery Kovalev and this is my Alternative metro maps.

Tap on any station to hear pronunciation and to make a route.

About speaking:
Try reading it out loud and there will be real russian names of the subway stations.
To read that map correctly you need to speak fast, but don’t forget about accents in names.
Tap on each station to hear proper english and russian pronunciation.

These translated subway maps were originally conceived as a joke. But it turned out that they can be beneficial for English speaking subway passengers in the former Soviet space. Sometimes it is very difficult for them to deal with pronunciation of the names of subway stations. For the most part this is actual for Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kiev with their extensive underground transport system.
In this application you can read and listen to the stations names and every Russian speaker will understand you. You can also easily get to your destination heard a similar set of sounds from a speaker in the subway train.

Who's voices belongs to?
Russian — Pavel Sergaziev
American — Hannah Yudkin
Ukrainian — Roman Ternevich
And there are some records with voice of Google-translator.

Now I plan to transfer the subway map of all the Russian, Ukrainian and Belarusian cities that have or are planning to launch this type of transport. If you can help me, I'll be very happy.

Thank you for your support!

Fantastic App

This is the BEST way to find anything in the city, and it is the only and the funniest way to make people in Russia understand you))

Stupid Americans.

Apparently this is how the developer thinks Americans would say these words. Unfortunately not even my Russian wife could make heads or tails out of the "words" used. More than a little insulting to the target audience.
