Places like Sokol Metro Station were part of the Socialist Motherland plan. Stalin had designers use the concept of svet” (light), and “sveltloe budushchee” (a bright future).

The deeper line that was built beneath places like Aeroport Metro Station is said to connect the Kremlin with other important stops around the city. The Metro is now over 80 years old.
