The subway system in Ukraine's capital city is filled with marble, statement lighting, and beautiful artworks.
Kiev's three lines cut across the city, serving its almost three million residents, and the system is home to what is claimed to be the world's deepest subway station, almost 350 feet below street level.
The subway carries around 1.3 million people a day, and is filled with modern amenities like phone service and information screens.
But much of its beauty dates back to when its first stations opened in 1960, when Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union.
