The Longest Escalator In The World?

Well, it is certainly the longest I have ever seen or heard about…  This is in Kiev, Ukraine and is the way down to the city’s subway system which is very, very far underground.  The escalator moves quite quickly by Western standards, but it still takes several minutes to get to the bottom.

  1. I made a movie of the whole thing when I encountered it. I think it was 7 minutes or something like that, if its the same one I was on. I was told that the subway was also the bomb shelter, thats why it was so deep.

    • The North Koreans claim that they have the longest escalators in the world, but after riding both, I still have the impression that the escalators in Kiev are longer.
