The Kryvyi Rih Metro system is part of the much larger Kryvyi Rih tramway network in Ukraine.

This metro system is unusual because it utilises tramway rolling stock. The network is sometimes referred to as a metrotram system.

The underground part of the system has a track length of 7 km and the total track length is 18.7 km.

The metro system relies on a turning circle at each end of the line.

Bald and Bankrupt rides the Kryvyi Rih Metro

Watch a video produced by vlogger Benjamin Rich of Bald and Bankrupt, in which he relates his experience on this metro system.

The video starts at the point just before Rich enters Prospekt Metalurhiv station.

To find out more about Kryvyi Rih and Bald and Bankrupt’s adventures in the city, just rewind the video to watch from the beginning. It’s an excellent video and well worth the experience.

Trams painted by artists

Travel with me across continents in trams painted by artists. Sometimes it's sunny, other times rainy and stormy. We'll freeze in the snow while queuing for the tram. We'll hang onto the tram because we need to get there. But we'll always look for a tram in the sunshine.
