I have wanted to explore the beautiful underground stations in Moscow for years and years and now finally I had the chance and was over excited and dragged my poor friends around in the underground very late at night trying to see as much as possible, and you can see why, this is Dobryninska station on the circle line, just one of many stations that resemble a palace more then a underground station. The platforms are much wider then in London and Stockholm and the ceilings are very high, lot's of marble and on some stations like this one there is old USSR propaganda art.

That's one damn impressive tube station! :o Wish all of them would look like that, or even a bit more special than the usual grey caves.

Hi Emmi,

Yes, there were some really impressive stations, and you should have seen some of the entrances, felt like you stepped into a church and not to the underground - unfortunately I couldn't get my favourite station on a pic as it was to dark but you should google it Revolution square, and Moscow underground, amazing!
