Moscow Metro - Take 1: Park Pobedy

Here they come - pics from Russia. Apparently no one actually takes taxis in Moscow and I never saw one anyway, so it is either walk or take the metro. At first it is quite intimidating - huge subway system to the scale of Tokyo, but only signs in Russian. But the stations are so amazing that I spent half a day down underground checking them all out. This is one of the newer ones, but it was so futuristic and crazy that i just had to take it. Got yelled at here as I did at most stations for taking pictures - which everyone who works there seems to think is illegal although apparently it isn't - and I downloaded the Russian photography laws and carried in my cell phone to prove it. They didn't like that...
