Rating: 1 star (bronze)  Minsk

Like other metro systems in the former Soviet Union, the stations have been built using exquisite materials and a few are decorated with socialist-style reliefs.

Several of the stations in Minsk seem to have a certain 'light-weight' feel that makes one forget that they are underground.
