The Moscow Metro Has Some Beautiful Stations

Written by


As of 2014, the Moscow Metro has 195 stations and its route length is 325.4 km (202.2 mi). Opened in 1935 with one 11-kilometre (6.8 mi) line and 13 stations, it was the first underground railway system in the Soviet Union. The system is mostly underground, with the deepest section 74 metres (243 ft) underground at the Park Pobedy station, one of the world’s deepest. As of 2013, the Moscow Metro is the busiest metro system outside of Asia, the world’s busiest by daily ridership and the 6th longest in the world. [source]

Of those 195 stations many have interesting architecture and design that reflect the era they were built in. The Sifter compiled a brief list below of some of the more eye-catching stations. If you know any stations that should be added to the list, let us know in the comments!
