Overview

Built by soviet architect Alexey Dushkin and opened in 1930, this glamorous station is one of the most well-known in the world for its pre-Stalinist design. The station, which is part of the Zamoskvoretskaya Line on Moscow's metro system, features gorgeous architecture and design. Dushkin's art-deco concept is in full swing as the entire place is covered in ornate marble, pink rhondite, stainless steel and glass mosaics. Inspired and named after poet Vladimir Mayakovsky, due to his descriptions of the Soviet future, this station is certainly one to check out. Marvel at its grandeur and beauty before jumping on a train to your next destination.
