Abstract: We study the limit of the sequence of Kobayashi metrics of Riemann surfaces (when these Riemann surfaces form an analytic fibration in such a way that the total space of fibration becomes a complex surface), as the fibers approach the center fiber which is not in general smooth. We prove that if the total space is a Stein surface and the smooth part of the center fiber contains a component biholomorphic to a quotient of the disk by a Fuchsian group of first kind, then the Kobayashi metrics of the nearby fibers converge to the Kobayashi metric of this component as fibers tend to the center fiber.
