Moscow Subway

The stations in the Moscow subway system, opened in 1935, are monuments unto themselves. Marble platforms, stucco and gilded ceilings, stained glass, mosaics and bas-reliefs adorn the stations on the circular line. While some of the 200 stations of the network may seem a little dilapidated and the somewhat pompous decorative style may make you smile, the Moscow subway remains a major symbol of the city and the Soviet era.
