World's Most Beautiful Subway Stations

Moscow: Kievskaya Station

The marble pillars and mosaics in Kievskaya Station exude the opulence of a giant powder room. The station was constructed in 1954, at the height of what Dr. Peter Haiko of the University of Vienna calls the “Stalin Baroque style.”

Don’t Miss: The poignant mosaics depicting images of abundant crops and Russian-Ukrainian unity, in spite of the fact that, in 1932, the Holodomor (Stalin’s starvation policy) killed an estimated 10 million Ukrainians.
