Komsomolskaya Metro station


Looking at the Baroque architecture, bright yellow ceiling decorated with grand medallions and wall mosaics with scenes from Russian battles as well as images of historic weaponry, one might mistake Moscow’s Komsomolskaya Metro station for a historic palace or government building’s grand entryway. But in fact, it’s one of the city’s busiest transit stops, located along the Koltsevaya Line of the Moscow Metro. Originally opened in 1995, the station serves more than 54 million people each year.
