Futuristic stations are usually associated with Kyiv's and Kharkiv's Metros but there are some in Moscow as well.

This entire thread is truly fascinating. Thank you all for your amazing pics & some of the background history of the system & the various stations.

I would love to ride on the Moscow Metro. It's a true masterpiece.

The Moscow Metro is mind-boggling.

I was wondering, what new lines/extensions have there been since the fall of communism? I noticed that a few of the stations posted above had been built post-USSR times but they kept the style of the Soviet stations (which is great).

Some news

Telecom has connected Beeline and Megafon into their cables on the circle line. So the line got a 100% of mobile coverage in tunnels by the all Big Three mobile operators (Beeline, MTS and Megafon).

Thanks for the updates!

Edit: I've seen a lot of people in these pictures wearing camouflage, is the military helping with the construction or something?

I think some workers are just wearing their old uniforms for work, as they are durable and they don't mind if they they get dirty or break/rip. That can be seen in eastern european countries regualry, farmers wear some old military fatigues as well as construction workers etc...it's not about the camouflage

this is not a millitary uniform. camouflage wearing is just popular and could be bought anywhere. wearing is new, just quickly becomes dirty under the ground.

I know that majority of subway systems in the world run on a deficit, but I wish there was some kind of a list that would rank systems based on how much they make/loose.
it was profitable before the world crisis. became slightly unprofitable in 2008 due to reduced number of passengers, so they have increased prices by 35% in average since 2009. no reports for 2009 released yet.

Full mobile coverage is not a good idea since Terrorists use mobile phones to explode bombs.

Living is not a good idea, because terrorists kill.
