Station Taganskaya

Opened: 01.01.1950
Architects: K.Rushkov, A.Medvedev

The theme of war is continued throughout this station. It is rather more reserved in design compared to the Komsomolskaja.  The immense pillars of the archways are made from light colored marble and decorated with panels using the Majolica-technique.

On a gentle blue background, images of Russia’s famous wars are depicted.  If you look closely at the details you can see ships, knights in ancient armor and warriors of the twentieth century.  Sailors, infantrymen and airmen come to life!  The whole scene is complemented with delicate Russian ‘folk style’ flora and fauna.
