When Muscovites do something they usually do it in style and this is certainly true when it comes to the Metro stations of Moscow. Those who take the subway in Moscow are treated to some serious Soviet flair. Many of these stations are so grand they could be easily mistaken for a ballroom! What makes them even more interesting though is that they are all so different from each other.
One thing they do virtually do all have in common though is their depth. The deepest metro station is a whooping 74 metres (243 ft) underground, making it one of the world’s deepest. There is a logical reason for this, however… the stations also originally doubled as nuclear fallout shelters! (And I guess they still do…)
This post isn’t about giving you a history lesson though. Instead, I wanted to show you some pictures of my 10 personal favourite metro stations in Moscow (in alphabetical order). Hopefully some day you will get to visit this amazing city and see them for yourselves! If you do you can make an afternoon of it like I did and simply buy a single metro ticket for 50 rubles (approx. USD$0.63).
Well there you have it – my 10 personal favourite metro stations of Moscow! These certainly put my old New York L-Train station to shame!
