The underground transport in many cities involves dirty places with low ceilings, pools, strange sights so that the individual wants to avoid. Such stations are not a destination. But in some parts of the world, they are surprisingly important works of art , great caverns with art, with beautiful architectural artifacts. Some stations are like museums, others are like in a science fiction film and others like ballrooms.

Many of the magnificent Soviet undergrounds, for example, were designed as "Palaces for the People", making investments they reach the royal opulence. Architects have used so much alabaster, onyx, marble and mosaic, that if you do not see the train occasionally, you think you've arrived in the Kremlin Palace itself. Here you can see some of the most interesting subway stations in the world.
