Moscow has some of the most elegant Metro subway stations of any country, ranging from modernistic art deco interior designs to more ornate baroque-looking walls to huge stained-glass walls. This gallery displays a few of the many styles.

During the morning rush hour of March 29, 2010 two suicide bombings were carried out, about 40 minutes apart, in the Moscow subway system by two women at different stations–Lubyanka and Park Kultury. At least 40 people were killed, and over 100 injured. Further, two other people died in the resulting stampede at both the stations after the blasts.
