Moscow's World-Famous Metro Through Instagram

The Moscow metro is one of the busiest in the world, with millions of commuters passing through it every day. But it's also one of the most impressive transport systems — every metro station has its own character and style. 

Unsurprisingly, these "palaces of the people" are a huge hit on Instagram. We asked you to share your best photos of the underground and made a selection of the best ones. 

Want to participate? This week's theme is "Soviet architecture." Take your best pic and submit it on Instagram by tagging us @themoscowtimes or using the #themoscowtimes hashtag.
