Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

When the stranglehold of the communist regime that blighted the future of most every country that suffered under that terrible form of tyranny collapsed in 1989 most every country affected got rid of every reminder of the bad old days of communism ,in the Czech Republic reminders of those dark days were obliterated but its funny when you get the metro at Andel Metro Station in the Smichov district that this station has been left as it was before 1989 ,its cool to view ,I believe its a clever way of the Czech government to remind people what times were like in those communist days,its most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area and easy to locate in the Smichov district.

As my twin brother Stephen and I were staying in the Smichov District ( Praha 5 ) we used this metro station most every day,it's a metro station that has a manned office so you're not relying on machines for your travel passes ,this station is quite unique in that it's one of the last stations that still bares traces of the Communist regime that blighted the Czech Republic until 1989 when the fall of Communism started.
Like most every other country that lived under that tyranny ,the Czech Republic lost no time in getting rid of any reminders of the Communist past ,Prague was no exception but this metro station survived ,architecture is cool ,it's such a photogenic metro station and well worth checking out if you're in the Smichov District.

The only metro station that retains it's old communist style architecture is Andel Metro Station and is also the metro station my twin brother Stephen and I used the most as we were staying in the Smichov District ( Praha 5 ) .
The station looks cool,lots of interest to see and as an added bonus there's a manned counter so you can purchase your travel pass without using one of the machines,most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the Smichov District.

This metro station is always clean and very easy to navigate. Metro runs on timely basis and is not super crowded except at peak hours.

If you want to get a glimpse of the past and look at the architecture that was once prevalent during the communist times in Prague then just jump the metro to Andel metro station.
The Soviet style architecture and decorative scheme are impressive in this very large metro station.
After the fall of communism during the late 80's all vestiges of communist inspired architecture and design was stripped by every country that fell victim to Soviet aggression and Prague was no different but this metro station survived almost untouched,it's well worth checking out and is very interesting indeed.

This is a quickest way to get to Andel Center in Smichov for Shopping.

The train was on schedule and runs frequently.

All in all it took me 15 minutes to get to the Shopping centre

After 1989 the countries of Eastern Europe wasted no time in dismantling and destroying all vestiges of the communist regimes that had dominated them for over 40 years. The Czechs were no exception and apart from some large buildings there is little evidence that the communists were ever here. Andel Metro Station is an exception and is proof that not all Soviet art and architecture was bad. Indeed some of it was good. The station, originally called Moskva (Moscow) was designed by Soviet architects and 'given' to the Czech people. Similarly the Czechs designed a station on the Moscow Metro which was called Praha (Prague).

The architecture is on a monumental scale with steeply plunging escalators and wide, expansive platforms and passageways - the London Underground can seem quite claustrophobic in comparison. On the platforms are eight sculpted bronze panels of Soviet art - cosmonauts, hammer and sickles, athletes, etc. The panels were originally removed but were subsequently reinstalled. Perhaps this shows a community that can deal with its past and doesn't need to eradicate it. Also the area where these artworks are placed bears no advertising which emphasises the clean, monumental nature of the structure.

Also don't miss the southern entrance where the original bronze station sign still proclaims 'Moskva - Praha' and not the present name, Andel.

After 1989 the countries of Eastern Europe wasted no time in tearing down all the vestiges of communism, especially Soviet / Russian ones. Apart from some big architectural statements it has all gone - but not in Anděl. I believe this is the last chance to see a Soviet designed and adorned metro station in Prague. The station is deep and impressive in its scale - the architecture was 'given' to the Czech people by their Soviet comrades! In return a station on the Moscow system was designed by Czech architects. The design is functional and uncluttered by any advertising and as such is impressive with its clean lines and scale. Even better there are eight large bronze relievo panels displaying Soviet themes including cosmonauts and athletes. There is even a flag with the hammer and sickle! In the south ticket hall there is a large bronze sign displaying the station's original name, Moskva - Praha.

How has it survived? Apparently the eight panels were removed but later re-instated. The sign in the north ticket hall has disappeared. The station lies in a very working class area and it is quite likely that the local populace were not as hostile to the communists as much of the rest of Prague.

I hope it is a conscious decision to not completely eradicate the past - not all Soviet architecture and art was bad as epitomised by this metro station.
