MOSCOW - SUBWAY STATION - COMMUNIST ERA SYMBOLISM


MOSCOW, RUSSIA - APRIL 01: Passengers are seen at the Kievskaya Metro Station in Moscow, Russia on April 01, 2016. The Moscow Metro was one of USSRâ€ôs most ambitious architectural projects. With their reflective marble walls, high ceilings and grand chandeliers, many Moscow Metro stations have been likened to an "artificial underground sun". The chief lighting engineer was Abram Damsky, a graduate of the Higher State Art-Technical Institute in Moscow. Opened in 1935 with one 11-kilometre line and 13 stations, it was the first underground railway system in the Soviet Union. The first plans for a metro system in Moscow date back to the Russian Empire but were postponed by World War I, the October Revolution and the Russian Civil War. In 1923, the Moscow City Council formed the Underground Railway Design Office at the Moscow Board of Urban Railways. Sefa Karacan / Anadolu Agency
