The Monday Map: 80 years of Moscow Metro maps
The very first map of the archive - 1931. It's actually a projection of the lines that will be open in 1935.
Metro.ru is a project by the Russian designer Artiom Lebedev. It was started in 1996 and is regularly updated. It features an extensive collection of maps of the metro of Moscow of the past 80 years.
The first one is from 1931 and the latest one is the official one released last year. It's really amazing to see the evolution of the map but also all the "unofficial" maps that were designed during the soviet era.
You will find below some of our favorite ones but make sure to check this page to see the full archive. Also you can read the history of the metro of Moscow on the official website here.
