Richly Decorated Central Hall of Novokuznetskaya Station
«Richly Decorated Central Hall of Novokuznetskaya Station»
Novokuznetskaya is one of the most richly decorated metro stations built in wartime. It is also a monument to Russian military valour. The walls of the central hall have bronze shields with flags and an inscription dedicated to the defenders of Sevastopol, Odessa, Leningrad and Stalingrad respectively. The longitudinal axis is emphasized by the line of bronze standard lamps in middle of the hall. They illumine the six smalt mosaic panels on the celling that were assembled in Leningrad (St. Petersburg) during the blockade.
