About the Moscow Metro
It was built during the government of Joseph Stalin in 1935 and is one of the most frequented of the world (about 8 million people go up and down every day of the wagons in a city with little more than 10 million inhabitants). There are 171 stations distributed in a network of 12 different lines.

Some stations were built during the Second World War and were originally planned as shelters in case of bombing.
Under the Stalin's Government, between 30's and 50's, were built the biggest stations. Stations built in the governments of Nikita Kruschev and Leonid Brezhnev, between 50's and 70's, got a simple decor. The new Stations built from 80's till nowadays got stronger extravagance.
