The metro in a big city is usually a hive of fast-paced travelers with their eyes on their cell phones and their e-books. In one of the means of transport most used daily by millions of people, there is little room for calm and visual delight. The framework of long corridors that shape the suburban, usually has no major architectural or decorative differences in any city in the world. However, as in all there are exceptions that make some stations authentic works of art. From America to Asia, we find spaces with impressive vaulted ceilings, frescos, mosaics, light sets and a long list of decorative resources that make these stations authentic underground museums.

In Moscow we find a station with a great architectural beauty. Decorated as large palace rooms, the majesty of Komsomólskaya station does not go unnoticed by travelers.

Korin designed eight mosaics that symbolize the struggle of the Russian people.
