Mayakovskaya metro station in Moscow. Designed by Alexey Dushkin, constructed in 1938. One of the most beautiful stations in Moscow! It has 34 ceiling mosaics designed by Alexander Deyneka. They’re located in those lit areas of the ceiling. If you’re ever there, take a few minutes to look up, they’re gorgeous!
