The Sokolnicheskaya Line (Russian: Сокольническая линия) is Line 1 of the Moscow Metro.

Overview[]

When the world was destroyed by a nuclear war in 2013, the Sokolnicheskaya line was 26.5 km long and had 19 stations. It is the oldest Metro line in Moscow. It was opened on 15th May, 1935. Its terminal stations are Ulitsa Podbel'skogo at the northern end and Yugo-Zapadnaya at the southern end.

Most of the line stations are controlled by the Red Line, one of the major factions in Moscow. This Stalinist faction got its name from the line itself, as it is always shown in red on pre-war Metro maps. The three southernmost stations are, however, cut off from the rest of the metro, because the Luzhniki bridge over the river Moskva (which included the station Vorobevy Gory) collapsed during the nuclear strike. The three cut-off stations are rumoured to be inhabited by a community of intellectuals and scientists from the Moscow State University, which was located above them. In the novel Metro 2034, Leonid and Sasha try to get to this community (known as the Emerald City), but are unsuccessful.
