Film about Moscow Underground(Metro) construction.
The Moscow Metro is a rapid transit system serving Moscow and the neighbouring Moscow Oblast towns of Krasnogorsk and Reutov. Opened in 1935 with one 11-kilometre (6.8 mi) line and 13 stations, it was the first underground railway system in the Soviet Union. As of 2012, the Moscow Metro has 188 stations and its route length is 313.1 km. The system is mostly underground, with the deepest section 84 metres (276 ft) at the Park Pobedy station. The Moscow Metro is the world's fourth most heavily used rapid transit system after Tokyo subway, Seoul Metropolitan Subway, and Beijing Metro.

In June 1931, the decision to begin construction of the Moscow Metro was made by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. In January 1932 the plan for the first lines was approved, and on March 21, 1933 the Soviet government approved a plan for 10 lines with a total route length of 80 km.

The Moscow Metro was one of the USSR’s most extravagant architectural projects. With their reflective marble walls, high ceilings and grandiose chandeliers, many Moscow Metro stations have been likened to an “artificial underground sun”.

When the Metro opened in 1935 it immediately became the centerpiece of the transportation system.

Now the Moscow Metro has a set of expansion plans which are due to be achieved by 2020.
