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.Located 33 meters beneath the surface, the station became famous during World War II when an air raid shelter was located in the station. On the anniversary of the October Revolution, on 7 November 1941 Joseph Stalin addressed a mass assembly of party leaders and ordinary Muscovites in the central hall of the station. During WWII, Stalin took residence in this place.

Excellent perspective, and fantastically vivid - is there a touch of HDR involved?

The poet would have been very proud. Of all things you have been praised for here about this picture I see one detail being left out. I therefore congratulate you for capturing a notion of motion on the train on the right. I don't know how many attempts you've made until you come with this one but they actually worth it.

Kind regards,
pablophotographer
