Moscow: Top 7 Metro Stations That You Can't Miss, Moscow, Russia (B)

After visiting Moscow, I can certainly say that Moscow Metro is one of the most, if not the most beautiful metro in the world. Opened in 1935 with an 11 km long line and only 13 stations, it became the first underground system in the Soviet Union. Today, it has more 200 stations spread in a route of over 300km. 

Built during the Soviet times as "the people's palace", originally its aim was promoting the communist ideals. While the tsars had constructed palaces just for their own enjoyment, Stalin constructed each station as an underground palace that each citizen and worker could enjoy.
