If you are curious about Russian art and soviet history, of course you will want to visit The State Tretyakov Gallery or the Kremlin. But there is also another way to dive down into Moscow’s rich past simply by hopping on the Circular Line - one of the oldest city metro lines which first opened in 1950. This line passes through several historic metro stations that are definitely worth discovering: the Kievskaya, Teatralnaya, Mayakovskaya and the Komsomolskaya are among some of the most beautifully decorated and ornamented soviet style stations in Moscow. Get off at Ploschad Revolutsii and take a look at the line of statues standing melancholically under the marble arches - you might even see students on their way to an exam rubbing the nose of a dog statue for good luck. If the Circular line has triggered your curiosity and you want to explore more, change lines and go to Slavyanskiy Bulvar station. There, you will see the best of what Russian modern architecture has to offer. I went for a stroll with a local photographer and I discovered a fascinating and enchanting world. The Moscow Metro will take you on a journey where past and present continue to meet everyday and will most likely to do so in the next hundred years.
