In the splendid publication Soviet Metro Stations, authors Owen Hatherley and Christopher Herwig have documented and collected photographs of the subways made in the Soviet era. Stations spread throughout the former territory of the USSR. All built from the 1930s to the 1980s.
Details, mosaics, sculptures, glimpses and richly decorated symmetrical environments are the subjects of these fascinating shots. All details make these stations unique and enchant us to a bygone era.
Here are some of the photographs collected in the Soviet Metro Stations book, also available on Amazon.
