Metro Station, Mayakovskaya

Moscow Metro Station

Mayakovskaya

Built in 1938

Mayakovskaya (Russian: Маяковская), is a Moscow Metro station on the Zamoskvoretskaya Line. Considered to be one of the most beautiful in the system, it is a fine example of pre-World War II Stalinist Architecture and one of the most famous Metro stations in the world. The name as well as the design is a reference to Futurism and its prominent Russian exponent Vladimir Mayakovsky.

I am an admirer of the design of the Moscow Metro stations.
