Moscow Metro, Moscow: 17 reviews and 20 photos
Favorite thing: Marble, gilt, chandeliers, mosaics, bronze sculptures - the Moscow Metro really does bring a grandiose touch to the everyday routine of catching a train around the city. Not all the stations are elaborate, but some are truly "palaces for the people". The themes are generally historical or an idealized depiction of Socialist life. Visiting all of them could consume a great part of the time you have in Moscow.
Fondest memory: Life-size bronze sculptures of the heroic proletariat line the main hall and escalators of the Ploshchad Revoluyutsii (Revolution Square) and glorify the the lives, work and heroism of the ordinary men and women of the Russian Revolution. It is an extraordinary body of work, well worth a good look.
