These are photos of different underground parts of Moscow by Russos. He makes official photos for Moscow Subway System so he often visits different underground places in Moscow that cannot be accessed by a regular person. He is fond of HDR post-processing of the photos so they look like a little bit overprocessed but still very cute.

    I love HDR, and these photos are great examples of why HDR is so good.

  3. Yuri says:

    Absolutely awesom!

  4. Orhidee says:

    What is HDR ??

    Stalctites, stalagmites (L) :)

      I loved playing Half Life 2, becuase of it sence of reality of the surroundings, rough and rusty surfaces, real buildings set up in a mysterious communist design. I also want to play STALKER the shadown of chernobyl, i have heard it’s similar to half life 2, developed by a Ukrainian cmpany, it is set in Ukraine where the chernobyl power plant accident happened in 1986.

        S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is a great atmospheric game, one of my favorites, but I would recommend one even more familiar to these pictures, and made by the same company, THQ. Check out Metro 2033.

        • anon says:

          STALKER: SoC is made by GSC Game World, published by THQ.
          Metro 2033 is made by A4 Games, people who worked at GSC but left before the release of SoC, THQ also published this.

          The STALKER series is my all time favourite game series but Metro is really good too!

  6. (wtf the anti-spam word was kgb)
    Great set of pics, would make an excellent video game.

  7. Dmitry says:

    Looks exactly like a screenshot of some last generation 3D shooter.

  8. Stephen says:

    Some of those are spooky, but good pictures all.

  9. Antoine says:

    Some of these locations would make awesome stunning movie sets!

  10. Gordon Freeman says:

    You can play Half-Life in those dungeons.. :)

  11. Michael Callahan says:

    Any chance we can grab these in a higher resolution ? Some of these would be amazing desktops.

  12. Geevee says:

    Marvelous! Look like cool 3D images, not photographs :)

  13. Strydr says:

    Amazing pictures but I’d rather go exploring in those tunnels more than anything, I could probably find some really interesting stuff and places there.

  14. jon says:

    “god, i love being a turtle!”

  15. Zone2 says:

    They’re fake 3D renders using real-life textures in some places.

  16. trat for says:

    Beyond remarkable engineering and photos.
    You have to remember where the Russian economy was after the big patriotric war to understand the immensity and complexity of these projects.

  17. Very cool shots! I think I might have seen a few duplicates in there though.

  18. Rico says:

    Absolutely amazing pics!!!

  19. pkzip says:

    Nothing to do with HDR. Seems like lot of people mistake certain type of processing for high dynamic range images.

    If you really want to see what HDR is, just look up Vienna HDR project and think a little.

    Amazing photos nevertheless! Very nostalgic.

  20. Jonas says:

    Very nice photos, like someone said, is it possible to download these in high res?

  21. ally says:

    Ugh, HDR.

    Amazing places though.

  30. ThatHippyMan says:

    I should totally load up a group of my friends and fly to Moscow w/ our foam weapons. That would be bad ass.

  31. Noora Nousiainen says:

    Very impressive. I just love Moscow underground!

  32. anony says:

    I would much rather see the original photos rather than touched up photos…you didn’t need to do that. Just post the originals next time and don’t tinker with them.

  37. dcneby says:

    Growing up with surface transport, I was impressed with London and Paris until I got to Moscow. The beauty and artistic ambiance of the tubes areas blew me away. It was by far the most enjoyable sysem I have ever seen. I knew there must be another view, it having been made when times were not plentiful I am amazed. Thanks for another view.

  54. says:

    Niesamowite zdjęcia z Moskiewskiego metra…

    Niesamowita galeria zdjęć zrobiona w Moskiewskim metrze przez oficjalnego fotografa tego przybytku.
    Pokręcona i niesamowicie długa plątanina tuneli, korytarzy i jaskiń.
    Warto zobaczyć….
