My Ride Through The Moscow Metro

Moscow's famous 'Red Line' was the city's first railway line which opened in 1935. Today it comprises 22 stations in all and each and every one of them is like visiting a museum. On my journey to Russia I had the pleasure of traveling on the Metro to experience for myself the way many Russians commute and also take in the ornate and very impressive underground.

It's difficult to put into words just how amazing the journey was the sights and sounds -'s just a train ride you may say! So instead, lets take a look through the len's of a talented photographer - who best communicates my feelings about this journey underground in Moscow.

Renowned photographer David Burdeny was lucky enough to be granted an opportunity to photograph a number of stations when vacant, so let's take a look at some of the underground beauties.
