Moscow Metro, Moscow, Russia. Some cities really take care of their public transportation. Just like Stockholm, Moscow is another town, where traveling can become a hobby. The capital’s huge metro has 195 stations and sprawls for 325.4 km (202.2 mi). At the time it got opened in 1935 it was the first underground railway in the region.
Another interesting fact is that at 74 m (243 ft) deep the Park Pobedy station is the deepest one in the world. But what makes it the most compelling is the design. Every station reflects the era it was completed in. Some look modern, some utterly historical, especially to the Westerner, who is not familiar with the Soviet architecture. It indeed feels like a time travel!
Why to go there?
Moscow Metro is the busiest station in the world after Asia. That is the easiest and fastest way to get around in the capital.
When to go there?
All year round.
How to get there?
There is an easy access from any part in the city.
