Moscow’s subway stations are considered by most architects to be the most beautiful metro system in the world. Each station was constructed in line with the Soviet propaganda, meaning that they were built to be extravagant, in order to show the prosperity and wealth of the Russian people.

While not all the metro stations in Moscow and in St. Petersburg, Russia’s second largest city, were built to be artworks, the most important ones are truly a sight to see for tourists and residents alike.

The USSR started with these architectural gems in 1935, when Stalin gave directions to his architects to inspire a “bright future” to all the people passing through Moscow’s and St. Petersburg’s subways.

Canadian architect and photographer David Burdeny created an exhibition called ‘A Bright Future’, where he promotes the most luxurious and complex underground stations from Moscow and St. Petersburg.

Many photographers have tried to capture the beauty and uniqueness of Moscow’s subway, but it’s pretty hard to take pictures that capture the essence of each station because they are usually overcrowded. However, David Burdeny got permission to take photos for 20 minutes at 2AM, before the metro opened.
