The Ploschad Revolyutsii station is the stop nearest Red Square, so it is probably not surprising that it is one of the most beautiful.
The platforms were decorated with 76 bronze statues like the one above, and even included 4 bronze hunting dogs whose noses supposedly needed to be rubbed for luck!
Clearly lots of Moscow commuters think they need some luck :)
My favourite station was the Kiyevskaya Station, which is the underground station for the railway line from Moscow to Kiev, the capital of the Ukraine.
I thought at first these ladies were sewing but alas not :)
The lighting in some of the stations was another highlight,
and the chandeliers at Komsomolskaya Station. I felt that I should be in a cocktail dress and evening gloves :)
Wouldn't this make a wonderful quilting pattern?
Apparently the Moscow Metro system is the busiest metro system outside of Asia and the world's busiest by daily users, but every station that we visited was absolutely spotless so you would never have guessed. If you ever get the opportunity to visit some of the beautiful stations on the Moscow Metro, then I highly recommend that you take it. We will definitely be going back!
