Moscow's Beautiful Metro Underground Network Is Displayed In A Series Of Stunning Images

Forget walls of advertisements and the scuttle of rodents carrying pizza; Moscow's magnificent underground stations are the most beautiful in the world. Canadian photographer David Burdeny captured these stunning images of the Russian system during after-hours access to the network.

Moscow's Metro was built in 1935 during the height of Joseph Stalin’s rule. The city had been pleading for a modern transportation system since the turn of the century, but the government refused as the tram network was deemed adequate.
