The Ring line, which partly follows the Sadovoye koltso (Garden Ring Road), joins all the radial lines through its twelve stations. The project was approved way back in the early 1930s, but construction did not begin until the end of the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945). This explains why the Ring line is a kind of pantheon of military glory. The theme of victory resounds strongly in the decor of Belorusskaya, Komsomolskaya, Taganskaya, and the ground-level pavilions of Oktyabrskaya and Kurskaya. All the Ring stations are monuments to the people who emerged victorious from that terrible military conflict. The decor is in keeping with the Stalinist Empire style of Moscow's seven "wedding-cake" buildings.
