Moscow: Kievskaya Station
The marble pillars and mosaics in Kievskaya Station exude the opulence of a giant powder room.
The station was constructed in 1954, at the height of what Dr. Peter Haiko of the University of
Vienna calls the “Stalin Baroque style.”
Don’t Miss: The poignant mosaics depicting images of abundant crops and
Russian-Ukrainian unity, in spite of the fact that, in 1932, the Holodomor (Stalin’s
starvation policy) killed an estimated 10 million Ukrainians.
