Náměstí Míru

Náměstí Míru is a Prague Metro station on Line A. It is located in Vinohrady district under Korunní Street and has one exit through an escalator tunnel with a sub-surface vestibule under Náměstí Míru Square. The station was completed along with the first section of Line A in 1978 and served as a terminus for some time until the expansion of Line A to Želivského station in 1980.

As of 2007 Náměstí Míru is the deepest station of the Prague Metro. Its platform is situated 53 metres below surface. As a consequence the station is equipped with one of the longest escalators in Europe (length 87 m, vertical span 43 m, 533 steps, taking 2 minutes and 15 seconds to ascend or descend without walking). Náměstí Míru, however, is not the deepest point within the Prague Metro network; this record belongs to the tunnel between Hradčanská and Malostranská stations (68 m below surface).

The name of the station which literally means Square of Peace derives from the town square where the station is located.
