Moscow: Taganskay Station

Taganskay Medieval architecture is the main theme of this station’s design. Intersections of arches create a kind of cross vault similar to those found in Russian boyar chambers from the 13th to 16th centuries.The pillars are generously decorated with majolica panels, in the style of the studio of Andrea della Robbia, the famous Florentine sculptor of the 16th century.However, instead of featuring images of Madonna, you will find profiles of heroes of the Soviet Army, such as sailors, tank operators and pilots, basking in glory with victorious banners and bayonets, painted with enamel and gilding.
