The Moscow Metro Stations are kind of amazing. It rained here and ruined our shopping time, so we went underground and checked out some of the more decorated stations. The Metro system here is an enormous achievement. Construction began in 1935 and the first lines opened in 1938. The artwork in some of the stations reflects communist achievements and served as propaganda in the city. Millions of people ride on this well-developed, clean and safe system everyday. Some of the cars are quite old, but they are fast and frequent. Cars arrived within 2-3 minutes here on a Sunday afternoon. Pretty incredible.
