Spelling Russian subway stations

Best tools are both useful and fun. This describes Alternative Metro map project which could help anyone who comes to Moscow or St. Pete not knowing Russian words but willing to take subway.

Russians use cyrillic sounds so you may never guess by yourself how to spell things you see on the map. Say, Dobryninskaya. How they say it?

Here comes this invention:

On this website you can also practice and listen how people really spell it.
Even if you only learn the station your hotel is on, it's totally worth it. You say the name of the metro station to any person on the street, and he shows you direction.

Now go ahead and try for yourself. Door bring in sky are. Dobryninskaya.

P.S. St. Petersburg also!
