Metro, Moscow: 60 reviews and 114 photos

  Moscow Metro
by tini58de

The Moscow Metro is not only a means of transportation, but a true gem of architecture.
There are some 6 stations that are especially impressive, so do try to go see them.

The stations of Moscow's subway system have often been called "the people's palaces", for their elegant designs and generous use of marble, mosaics, sculptures and chandeliers. Built during Stalin's rule, these metro stations were supposed to display the best of Soviet architecture and design and show how privileged the lifestyle of the Russian people was.

For more pictures have a look at my Metro travellogue!
