The most beautiful metro in the world, that’s what the subway of Moscow is called. Build in 1935 as the first metro system in the Soviet Union, it was supposed to be the ‘underground communist paradise’. The country’s dictator, Joseph Stalin, commanded that proletarian labor would produce this svetloe budushchee (radiant future).
Build with walls of marble, spectacular chandeliers and high ceilings, Moscow’s metro stations have been compared to an ‘artificial sun beneath the earth’. Now the meaning of culture is increased with the installation of a virtual library.
The almost 2.5 billion commuters a year can download more than 100 e-books for free, that are written by literary Russian giants like Pushkin, Chekov and Tolstoy. On their smartphone or tablet passengers can read ‘About Love’, meet ‘The Lady with a Dog’ or count ‘The Days of our Lives’.
At the moment the choice is prelimited, because the virtual library wants to put their main focus on the classical Russian literature. Travelers can make suggestions of new titles for the future, so the metro of Moscow can get even more beautiful.
