More Pictures of Moscow Subway - Metro System

One of my friends sent me a power point presentation about Moscow's Subway. I know I posted about Russia's capital subway system not so long ago. But I decided to post these pics anyways - may be some of you will be interested to know more about it. By the way, Russian English translation for subway is Metro. So if you are about to go to Russia and see a sign Метро or just a sign with an "M", you should know that it stands for subway.
Here you go...Pictures of gorgeous Moscow subway.


Baumanskaya Metro Station





This is also a Baumanskaya Metro Station






Belorusskaya Station






Dobrinskaya Subway Station in Moscow






Dinamo Station in Moscow






Kievskaya Subway station - One of the most beautiful stations in Moscow. Long time ago I was doing a Russian phone translation for one of my friends from USA visiting Moscow. At the time of the translation he was in that station...Well, you won't believe me how much of an excitement he had.






This is also Kievskaya Station...






And this is the same station — Kievskaya




Komsomolskaya Metro

I hope you enjoyed these pictures. I have some more of those...

These stations were of course largely created as propaganda pieces for Stalin's Five-Year-Plans.

Thank you for your feedback. In my next post I will post some more of Moscow metro stations. So visit our blog frequently!
As for the propaganda, that's probably true. But nobody really excludes this fact. I'm just trying to show the beauty of those stations.
But thanks for the comment.

Please post shots of the glorious ceiling mosaics in the Mayakovskaya station, and the oversized statues holding up the arches at Barrikadnaya, those were always my favorites.

I lived in Moscow in the early 1990's, and the two things I miss most are the theaters and the Metro.

Nowhere in the world are the underground tube stations as glorious as they are in Moscow.
If you are visting this beautiful city then we invite to stay in your own apartment just like a true moscovite!
