Toledo is a station on Line 1 of the Naples Metro, in Italy. It is very famous for being the winner of the 2013 LEAF Award as "Public Building of the Year".

9. Bockenheimer Warte Station, Frankfurt

The entrance of this station looks as if a carriage crashed into the concrete and we can say it is one of the coolest subway entrances. This station leads to the Bockenheimer Warte station, one of the four major stations with interchanges on the Frankfurt Metro and was built in 1986.

10. Iidabashi Station, Tokio

For architecture lovers, Japan offers many “must-see” sights and we recommend Iidabashi Station, the major interchange railway station which straddles Tokyo's Chiyoda, Shinjuku and Bunkyō wards. It is one example of Japanese post-modern architecture for its metal flower, which is actually a ventilation tower, housing the air-conditioning equipment for the subway station.
