Moscow Metro: The most beautiful metro in the world that looks like a huge underground palace

More beautiful than a palace!

The Moscow metro station is really like a palace that has come out like a painting from a book.

Moscow Metro: A museum like no other

The Moscow Metro is a work of art that anyone can visit. It has nothing to do with the outside world. It was built during the Stalin era.

Which makes one wonder if the reason why so many people died of starvation during the Stalin era was the construction of this subway.

The Moscow metro opened in 1935.

His luxurious architectural designs aimed to create the impression of a bright future.

Stalin directed the architects to embody the meaning of the word Svet or light and the phrase sveltloe budushcee: bright future.

Many of the stations have busts of Soviet leaders such as Lenin and murals modeled on their propaganda with elements such as Homo Sovieticus.

Under the slogan “The whole country works for the metro”, about 75,000 workers participated in the project.

These “palaces for the people”, as Stalin called them. They had a goal. To remind the hungry masses that the rubles were spent for public purposes.

Ornate chandeliers, unique mosaics, copper columns, marble walls, stained glass windows. The stations combine the magic of baroque and classicism to reflect the ideals.

Moscow Metro: “Art has no use unless it serves politics.”

The socialist philosopher Nicolay Chernyshevsky said: “Art has no use unless it serves politics.” Including the reason he considered more likely as a reference the construction of the metro.

The first stations are an eclectic mix of baroque, classicism, Soviet realism and almost religious illustration with idealizations of historical characters, representations of important victories and scenes from sports, industry, agriculture, the military past and present, the brighter future that follows, and the heroic working class from various Soviet ethnicities.

Of course, the October Revolution could not be absent!

The artifacts include reliefs, friezes, marble and bronze statues, stained glass windows and countless mosaics made of glass, marble and granite.
