Moscow. Metro is not only a very efficient, clean, fast means of transport but an amazing hidden world under the ground with glittering chandeliers, mosaics, solemn marble halls and monuments. Without any doubt it can be called “the largest underground museum”. Many of the stations were luxuriously designed and decorated by leading Soviet artists and sculptors in the Stalinist Empire style as a demonstration of power and wealth of the Soviet Union.
At the center of the map of Moscow’s metro system there is a circular line, consisting of 12 stations with continuously running trains that circle the heart of the city. This line was constructed following the Second World War, and the decoration glorifies the military might of the Russian people. Almost every station has architecture of cultural significance.
