5. Komsomolskaya Metro station

More like a grand ballroom than a Metro station, Komsomolskaya station is known as “Moscow’s Sistine Chapel.

While each station in Moscow’s subway system is a work of art, this is by far the fanciest. Baroque features and gilded mosaics will make your jaw drop open in wonder.
