How Moscow’s Metro became part of Game of Thrones
Thursday, 10 August 2017 17:46

Russian artist Sergey Samoylov, who works under the pseudonym Samuel Rosto, took a map of Moscow’s Metro, laid it over a map of Westeros and Essos (fictional places from Game of Thrones), and discovered something amazing.

Okhotny Ryad station became King’s Landing. Oldtown is now situated at Universitet Metro, and The Wall hugs the monorail line in the north of the city. His map made waves on Russia’s Internet and many people now refer to the fictional names when telling friends and family where to meet on the subway.

Make sure to check out this map in full size to see the incredible parallels Samoylov has drawn between Moscow and Game of Thrones. Click to enlarge image.
