321 Photos made in Moscow subway

Photos made in Moscow subway

Posted on August 29, 2006 by team

If you ever think about travel to Russia and visit Moscow, you might like visit Moscow subway. It's definetely worth looking. First of all architecture of Moscow subway is astonishing, I think I'll make a separate post about architecture of Moscow subway, because each stop, each station is so nice. During Soviet era amounts worth of millions dollars were invested in the construction of Moscow subway.

Each station is like museum, with huge patchworks occupying some walls, high ceilings and antique type chandeliers. And in those magnificent interriors nowadays you can meet people that look like really weird.

You can meet Comrade Stalin for example, sitting on the common passenger seat of Moscow subway.

      Excuse me,but,whereas the fact I’m not Russian,I think this pictures and them comments are very “USA vs Russia”.
      And,I’m sure that American metro’s passengers aren’t better!
      Ok,that could be funny,but,if you want to be more funny,now,send your American’s people’s metro’s Pic!
      I’m sure the joke will be better!
      In order to conclude”on ne voit bien que la paille qui est dans l’oeil de son voisin,mais,jamais la poutre qui est dans la sienne”!
      That’s an fact,not an jugement,but,I’m sorry,but,how could you be funny with people’s sadness?
      Will you go to Russia only to say and show bad things?
      What do you say if others countries do the same?????
      Peace begins here.
      Respect,please.And,sorry about my language,I’m not English,not American.

        I agree with you – some people in New York subway look way more crazy! Not as many drunks but plenty of pips who may be “high” on something. I lived a long time in both “worlds” – Moscow and USA.

    ну и пусть хают Россию…а нам пооофиг:) кстати, как в Англии – не знаю, а вот в Германии, конкретно в Кельне, такого в метро нет:)

  15. Omar Upegui says:

    I knew people drank a lot in Russia, but the photographs depicts a clear example of how bad the drinking problem is. I haven’t seen people drunk, sleeping on the floor of buses in Panama, even though this is a poor country.

    I wonder if these same social problems occurred during the ex-Communist Soviet Union?

    favorite quote:
    And sometimes they drink too much to continue their trip to home, or just their life trip, and they land in subway, which accepts those strangers with warm station buildings and speedlight trains.

    Great pictures, thanks! Really makes me want to go to Moscow, ride the subway and take pictures. Makes me also want to go to Moscow, ride the subway, and pick up girls! Won’t they enjoy my skillful English and cute American accent. I think I’ll try to take some pictures on the subway here in Chicago…

    Thanks again for these fabulous pictures!

  26. Ex-Soviet Man says:

    I was very saddened to see these photos. I left the USSR in 1981, never to return. I remember fondly the Moscow subway, having spent many content hours riding the bullet trains. I now live in Montreal, and the subway here, although very bland (very) compared to Moscow’s masterpiece, never exhibited such horror of a nation as these photos. Russia used to be a leader in culture, humanities (well, maybe not humanity), and civilization. Oh, what a poor decrepid monster this great beast has become. Наша родина? Моя родина там, где хорошо.

    I dont know about London or Cologne, but in San Francisco there are plenty of homeless people. They sleep on street , not in the subway, but it doesn’t look very much different.

    I cant wait to go to Russia I hear the chicks there are easy! From your pictures they seem to be fine as hell and with all the homosexual guys there it will be easy pickings for me when it comes to getting the ladies! I can finally fulfill my fantasy of having 26 girls at one time! God Bless Russia, especially there hot easy women!

  40. Joshua High says:

    Very interesting section of modern day life in Russia. But for a true study of drunken fools, start asking about pictures taken in Ireland. THERE you will find some mighty drinkers!!

  41. another russian says:

    american guy, i don’t think, that you’ll be able able to fulfill your fantasy. As soon as you find a second girl, your head will meet a frying pan ;)
    Russian girls ain’t that easy.

    And there aren’t many homosexualist guys in Russia. It’s very few of them.

  49. [...] Fotos, geschossen in der – nein, nicht Hamburger U-Bahn – Moskauer U-Bahn sind hier zu finden. Ein feines Blog im Übrigen mit interessanten Artikeln. Kamikaze-Demokratie schreibt über das verwunderliche Demokratie-Verständnis des Künstlers Hans Haacke. Im Berliner Reichstagsgebäude gibt es ein Kunstwerk namens “Der Bevölkerung”. Jetzt könnte man ganz naiv annehmen, dass es ja sicher kein Problem sei, Fotos von diesem Kunstwerk zu machen und im privaten Weblog zu veröffentlichen – warum auch nicht? Wurde das doch schließlich mit Steuergeldern – also von uns allen – finanziert und steht auch noch in “unserem” Reichstag… was sollte also dagegen sprechen? Gewerkschaften muss man – insbesondere auch in heutigen Zeiten – kritisch sehen. Auch über einen gesetzlich festgelegten Mindestlohn mag man trefflich streiten können. Worüber man nicht streiten kann, ist das Mindestlohn-Weblog. Wenn nicht pro Mindestlohn argumentiert wird, sind dort feine Artikel von Andreas zu finden, so z. B. zur Kinderarmut. Via dem Schockwellenreiter bin ich auf diese alten Landkarten aufmerksam geworden – grandios. Der letzte Linktipp zu unseren Nachbarn geht zu Missi – großes Kino zum Thema Spamabwehr. [...]

    • ジャイ says:

      Photos, shot in – no, not Hamburg underground – the Muscovites underground are to be found here. A fine Blog in all other respects with interesting articles. Kamikaze democracy writes over the amazing democracy understanding of the artist Hans Haacke. In the citizen of Berlin realm tag building gives it a work of art on behalf of “the population”. Now couldn’t one accept completely naively that it was safe no problem, photos from this work of art to to make and in the private Web log publish – why also? Nevertheless finally with tax fundses – thus of us all – one financed and also still stands in “our” realm day… which should thus against it speak? One – in particular also in today’s times – must see trade unions critical. Also over a legally specified minimum wage one may be able to argue trefflich. About what one cannot argue, is the minimum wage Web log. If not per minimum wage one argues, there fine articles from Andreas are to be found to, so e.g. to the child poverty. Via the shock wave rider I became attentive on these old maps – grandios. The latter linktap to our neighbours goes to Missi – large cinema about Spam defense

    I’ve lived in Alexandria (just outside of Washington DC) and I’ve travelled on the subway in NYC. I’ve seen stuff at least as bad as this on a fairly regular basis, except you never see drunk cops because you never see any police on the subway at all. But plenty of drunks and wackos, expecially in DC.

  63. Vast says:

    There is no commando man in Moscow subway. Man with a gun is just paintball player. ;) And by the way that particular picture was taken in Saint-Petersburg subway.

    Comrade Stalin is an comedian, he earns for a life being photographed with tourists on the Red Square. If you eventialy will vizit Moscow you will see actors playing Lenin, Trotski and even last russian emperor Nicolas.

    If you wood like to see how Moscow subway realy looks like just vizit http://metro.ru/stations/. Unfortunately site has only russian text, but anyway photos worth to look. I think you will not find nothing similar in whole world. ;)

Budapest’s “extravagant” face is sometimes more funny for the tourists – and more sad for us, hungarians.

    Kpngvin! mégcsak 18 éve élek itt, de ha mondjuk néha a 3-as metron jársz, nézz körül…azért írtam aug második hetét, mert Sziget alatt meg főleg nagy a gáz. de azért írtam h nem a metrók, hanem az éjszakai buszok főleg. és nem csak az ittas embereket emeltem ki, hanem az öltözködést is, mert úgy egészében beszéltünk a dolgokról. és mondom még egyszer: épp elég részeggel találkoztam a metroba, h a fenntit le merjem írni! (itt mint ahogy feljebbi vitákban is szó volt, nem csak a szerelvényeken lévő emberekről beszéltünk. a metró teljes területéről. és ha azt mered mondani h nincs dugig tele Kőbány-Kispest alkeszokkal, akkor én kérek bocsánatot! viszont akkor menj el Moszkvába, és hasonlítsad össze h ott mi van!!! mert a “more” itt az orosz helyzetekre vonatkozott!)

  85. t_raven says:

    First of all, half (if not every single) of those pics are stolen. Wtf, why I can see “www.englishrussia.com” on every single of them? You should make a link to the source.
    Second, you won’t see same at Moscow’s subway everywhere. It is just a single occasions, collected during a period of time.
    And third, I might thank you for “Each station is like museum, with huge patchworks occupying some walls, high ceilings and antique type chandeliers.” but you shouldn’t only post those photos, where’s smthn funny etc, and also describe like its usual.

  86. Quite some odd people there in Moscow I must say!

And besides, thouse aren’t police, they’re soldiers, drunk after the army, i would watch u in our Armies and c what would you do after it, if you could handle it at all!
    And you know what, if you were just trying to prove that we drink alot thats just such a myth! Yes, people in russia do drink but thats because it’s so cold and because of hard lives. Why wouldn’t you take few shots of London subway and put a comment under that english people have bier at breakfast, red wine on supper and more alcoholic drinks on dinner, if its not friday, if it is then they just drink till they fall asleep!!!

  130. bananas says:

    Very very interesting pictures. I didn`t think much of the captions, instead i prefered to judge for myself what was going on, but what amazing images. Thank you. It`s good to see examples of the real Russia, or at least more realistic than the images / stories we see on the TV here. People are people, whereever you go. Respect.

  131. bananas says:

    And what`s more, as regards another posters comments – you go to any city and you can see people who live on the street or those who are in need of help basically, society`s forgotten…

  132. Richard says:

    The Moscow Metro is clean and efficient. I would much rather ride it than, for example, the Washingto, D.C., Metro. The drunks and oddballs are there, but they are usually harmless. I remember a man who used to dress and look like Lenin and hung around Arbat Street. He was cool. Tourists would pay to have their photos taken with him. I had mine taken with a guy who dressed as Ivan Grozny (Ivan the Terrible).

    God bless Russia!

    Everyone forgets this is a humor site first. (and very funny! I love it!) No, these are not every day pictures of the Moscow subway. Yes, we have funny stuff on American subways too. But Moscow really does have the passed out drunk guys. As Americans, we assume they are homeless but it is just average guys passed out – that’s why it’s funny (sad funny).

    Everyone should check out pictures of the subway stations though. The Moscow subway really is the most beautiful subway in the world.

  143. Francky says:

    The Moscow underground… It is the whole world where it is possible to meet simultaneously examples of terrible cruelty and amazing philantrophy… I go by this underground every day, and sleeping drunkards I see, well once a month can…. The Author of photos for certain needed a lot of time to collect such picturesque company. The underground at us in Moscow have devoted the whole musical. And all is not so terrible, as on these pictures. And still. Yes, in our country people like to drink, but not so if to judge on these pictures- – there can be a wrong impression. On a photos are presented drunks for a long time lost human and national shape . And the author has not photographed our beautiful girls!!! ((((

    Хохлы в своём репертуаре. Комплекс у них очень большой. Не нравится Россия? Не надо здесь работать, пиздуйте у Кыиу. Хохлы в России – это проститутки, торгаши и грузчики, не уважающие ни себя, не нас.

  148. Buddy---USA says:

    To all of the Russian readers that are upset with Americans because of the Moscow subway photos, I must tell you that no one is attempting to laugh at you. This site is not American. It is from Finland and is in English only because they want us to be able to read the text. I don’t believe that Russians or Muscovites are all heavy drinkers. The photos show a human condition that is the same the world over. In fact, the photos show that the Russian subway riders are more tolerant than people would be on American subways. I have seen many other photos of Moscow, her citizens and the subways and they are beautiful.

    • Mimi says:

      Right you are; we visited Moscow May 2008, and were flabbergasted with the grandeur of this subway stations; from paintings, mosaics to sculptures it was a great surprise; nothing compared to our subway stations here in NYC. This photographs do not give justice, they only show the inside of the subway cars, and as Buddy says if these men were really drunk, we have them all over the US and for sure all over the world.

    yup this site is great! nice articles but the comments make me laugh even more beucase so many russians are trying to deny these things “90% photoshopped” LOL!

  163. [...] Photos made in Moscow subway [...]

  164. Goldminer says:

    About drunk people: two radically different phenomena are mixed. Some of them are obviously homeless people that LIVE in the subway. Well, they are almost constantly drunk. Similar pictures you could take in NYC or Paris. Others are ‘just drunk’. These are somewhat specific to Russia. You can rearly see an american police officer sleeping drunk on the floor in NYC subway in his(her???) uniform ;-) (It isn’t so frequent in Russia also. The photos are rear shots, don’t be afraid to enter Moscow subway, there aren’t dozens of people liyng drunk on the floor!) I am speaking only of common attitude to the fact. And it is … I’d say, very tolerant. Law is not. The charges for a crime would generally be harder if the accused is proved to be under the action of alcohol. But people have a mind of their own. ‘Sorry, I was just drunk’ is a very popular (and accepted) excuse in Russia. The attitude is not universal, of cause. Some people would accept it, and some wouldn’t. Your friends and your neighbours would probably be among the former, and your employer and your landlord among the letter… And your spouse? Well, I just don’t know…

    About the girls: The one on a tomb is probably a student and does probably speak English. The Serious and the Smiling are probably about $100/h, no need to speak. The Shady is probably a mom, don’t bother!

    Thanks for the great photos anyway!

    You will see the true greatness and beauty of the Moscow underground.
    And you will understand, that your underground, even it is impossible to compare comparison with Russian.
    Because each station of underground, as a separate palace under the ground, accessible to the usual person.

    I’m afraid most of that photos are not fake. BUT! These are extraordinary pictures of russian life, not normal. I think that every countries and every nations has some extraordinary pictures, and some pictures like this can be taken in ANY country and in any subway.
    I think that this is very special view and very tendentious collection of photos. I have no idea – for what?
    I’m russian, I love Moscow subway, this is really beautiful place. And I NEVER SEEN something like this!

    Sorry for bad english.

  174. ASender says:

    Dispite the fact that some of you think that is it “insight into what goes on in Russia”, I have my own theory.

    It is a carefully selected set of images to demonstrate how bad it is there. It is called “scum” in general. I can have just the same “gallery” of images from NY subway. In fact, I have seen Much worse scenes in NY.

    It is not unusual to see such images. After all, this is what CNN does every day. They, for example, pick a little hospital in a russian village in the middle of nowhere and show how “bad” the medical system in _Russia_ is. Pity, they don’t show the same type of things in Texas. It would be cheaper the to fly across the globe.

    This type of one-legged truth is really disgusting.

    Yeah, the photos definitely represent what’s sometimes going on in Russia’s subway! I saw drunken policemen many times also in 90s. Truth be told they are involved in change process :) and such cases are seldom nowadays.

  178. Обычный человек says:

    And what surprising? The underground as the underground. Anything especial.

Aufgrund akuter Zeitnot waren die Fussballer also gezwungen kurzerhand auf öffentliche Verkehrsmittel umzusteigen, um pünktlich zum Anpfiff auf dem Platz zu stehen: Die Moskauer Untergrundbahn.

    I’ve recently been to Prague and Budapest – nothing like on your pics! and add to that fact that in those cities police doesn’t control entrance like in your subway. They even don’t have those women sitting next to escalator with popping-out-eyes watching at crowds of people passing

    that’s all your mentalitet

    I am Tokyoite. I hesitate to make any grand statements about others because I saw boozer’s vomit in a crowded train at midnight several times. But Russian public manners are worse than ours.

    Do Russians like to wear black and white gothic costume? These people are often seen at Harajuku, Tokyo, too.

    Subway tranis in Moscow are obsolete. It looks like trains in Japan in the 1970’s. Russians should invest in your subway systems. Is Russia the rich country thanks to boom in the oil industry? I think that they afford it.

  199. Yaroslava says:

    Hey, people, I think you’re a bit prejudiced. Most of those drunk men sleeping in the subway are homeless. You probably know that it’s very cold in Russia in winter. So, subway workers just let homless people in without any fare, otherwise homeless would just feeze to death in the street. They go in and sleep in trains and on stations and you can see them early in the morning. Later they go away to come back in the night. It’s quite unpleasant for other passengers because those people stink, but it wouldn’t be any better to let them die.

Instead of filling your eyes with images created open your hearts and mind and start helping – there is a world of pain and misery out there you ignorants. What would you do uf you saw somebody sleeping in the Metro? TAKE A PICTURE? NO you foul….you are not blameless in order to cast the stone for instance at the women sitting next to the guy sleeping.

    Если Вы действительно узнаете, пожалуйста свяжитесь, мой адрес электронной почты: wesleyconley2009@yahoo.com и я хотим изучить реальный русский язык и язык признака больше чем 3 000 слов. Я надеюсь, что я иду в Россию когда-нибудь, таким образом я живу в Спрингфилде, Миссури, США. Я – глухой американский мужчина, и я интересуюсь на иностранном языке и различном языке признака по миру.

  233. [...] Courtesy of Very Short List there is this amazing compilation of funny, yet apparently normal for Russia, things that happen on the subway in Moscow. [...]

      Wow! It’s interesting that a simple series of photographs has provoked such hate, judging by the comments here. I personally don’t think that there is anything truly outrageous (or artful) in the photos…something that can be seen in any large city, if one is on a quest to capture it on film. However, it makes me sick to see how many truly self-righteous, bigotted, a-holes there are out there…from Russia, America, France, and everywhere else. I’ve known and loved people from all over the world, and I would never make such narrow-minded, blanket statements about the residents of any one country!

    All greetings, I live in Russia!!! Such in Moscow already for a long time is not present! Now Russia, a civilized country, and Moscow the largest, quickly developing, modern megacity! Bears do not go to a circle of the Kremlin also Russian do not drink constantly vodka and do not play infinitely on a balalaika, each citizen of Russia very much loves the country, all Russian true patriots! I think these photos those people which have made envy such big power (the government of the USA)!!! Interesting questions across Russia ask me isonikita@mail.ru, to all I shall answer.

  235. russian says:

    All americans and europeans are dumb and imbred, especially ones who left comments here.

  236. Dennis T says:

    Regarding the picture with the caption “Have you ever seen such a huge balalaika? And the balalaika owner seems to be quitely sleeping, not caring his musical instrument to be stolen. Who would need such a thing?” … that’s not a balalaika, it’s a bandura.

    русские непобедимы…

  239. I was much amused by the pictures, I thought they were fun :) Those things don’t happen on a regular basis but they CAN happen (except for the guy with the rifle, that’s impossible unless the rifle is fake).

    Those things can happen because Moscow is on the the most vibrant, diverse, cool and decadent cities in the world! Not to mention one of the largest. We’ve got lots of frieks here, hehe :) but they are cool and harmless. What I also see on the pictures is a great deal of tolerance the Moscow crowd shows to the unusual behavior. That rings true, too. People here are quite cosmopolitan and can tolerate almost anything.

    But I must say I am quite disturbed by the discussion here. It’s pretty sad that people lack any sense of humor and take these photos as some kind of representation of the “horrid Russian reality”. That’s *beep* pathetic. The Russian posters are the worst (shame on you guys!), some of the Americans don’t fall too far behind though.

    As for the homeless people, L.A. and San Francisco rule the world!!! :)))

    That Stalin guy freaks me out.If he applies for a job in German company,the Germans will run away.

  244. Hani says:

    Personally i thought it is worse than that. Russia todays weight is attributed it rusty weaopns and loads of bombs

    How come when i read some of these comments it sounds like there’s a dodgy Russian accent in my head

  247. world traveler says:


    Just got back from Moscow- I saw nothing like the pics here. The stations for the most part were works of art. They were crowded but very clean and the people were typical of all subways-

  248. Orchichorniya Vania says:

    By the way, I want you to know, your sadistic humor made my night. Russians shouldn’t be sad; puh-leez. I’m a Lithuanian-Greek and Yemenite Jew whose family settled in Israel only to be booted during Olmert’s first withdrawal from Israeli settlements. Life is depressing, folks, extrapolate some humor from it or kill yourselves. This is funny. Subways ARE a great way to meet interesting people, in every country, particularly countries where depressing things happen, because the content of people’s character in such countries is so much more complex. Expect it, get over it, laugh at it. Thanks for exploiting the humor in everything sad or difficult. You should merit health and happiness yourself. I only wish I would see such things on the metrolink here in Los Angeles. Peace.

  249. justme says:

    question, would a jamaican black guy be harmed most likely taking a russian subway?

  250. Sarah says:

    I’ve been on Moscow metro and didn’t see this, however only for a few stops. I’d have to be very lucky.

    As regards ‘drink problem’ I was chatting to a Polish guy here in Scotland
    Me – We have a bad drinking problem in Scotland
    Him – No you don’t you do it really well.

    What problem?!! ;)

  253. Sabrina says:

    God, why dont you go pick on something more important. Like say, former president bush?, war, the violence. But no you cant be bothered, pick on a people sleeping in a subway.
    Like…WOW, youve really opened up my eyes to how people (in every city) sometime sooner or later fall asleep on a bus or public transportation. Its such a crime. Thank you, you dull witted coward.

    Well, as a typical moscovite i am used to such ‘views’ and have almost forgotten that they are not exactly ‘normal’ elswhere. Unfortunately, i cannot leave my home town as i love it a lot as many of us. Now i can see what it looks like from abroad.

  259. [...] #9 Moscow Metro You may think i’m insane for picking this on the list especially since I picked the Tokyo metro as number 1 worst places to be during a Zombie apocalypse.The Moscow metero is the second busiest subway systems in the world with a average of 6.6 million riders daily. Why on earth is this place safe from a Zombie outbreak? a) Filled with armed people b) MASSIVE, Deep and old, During the cold war the metro was built to double as a nuclear bomb shelter. As long as you survive the initial horde you should be able to seal up a decent defense line within the tunnels, Play metro 2033 you’ll get the idea. Pros: Russian paramilitary around every corner. Cons: Cold, Dark, Damp and Could get filled with millions of zombies. image source [...]
