  • There are several stations that are true museums with mosaics, glass, sculptures and even Roman influence! Every season is a discovery! Surprise in the richness of materials and architectural beauty! For art connoisseurs you can stay several days to get a closer look at the works! The continuous flow of people makes it difficult a little! In some I had the opportunity to sit back and see calmly in others it was hard to even get close! Da to spend a morning or afternoon just visiting the stations!

  • Who was not in the Moscow subway, he did not see Moscow! Castles and palaces underground! Frescoes, stained glass windows, mosaics, stucco... All kinds of arts. So much work, so much love for the city! We recommend everyone!
