Surrounded by filament lights there are a total of 34 ceiling mosaics by Alexander Deyneka with the theme «24-Hour Soviet Sky.» A passenger can look up and see the bright Soviet future right above him.

      Located 33 meters beneath the surface, the station became an air raid shelter during World War 2. 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.
