Interior decoration includes bas-reliefs, friezes, marble and bronze statues, stained-glass windows and countless mosaics made with glass, marble and granite. As of 2016, the Moscow Metro excluding the Moscow Central Circle has 203 stations. Its route length is 339.1 km making it the fifth longest in the world.
