Overview

Komsomolskaya This station was constructed to act as a type of “gateway” to Moscow because it is located under the three busiest Moscow railway terminals.It represents the peak of the Stalinist Empire style with its elegant bronze chandeliers, marble arcades and monumental mosaics made from smalt. Today, the station is adorned with eight mosaic panels, designed in the style of ancient temple architecture. They depict famous Russian warriors, commanders, and the leader of the Russian Revolution, Vladimir Lenin, who is portrayed giving a speech in Red Square.
