Elektrozavodskaya metro station in Moscow (1978)

I was in Moscow for the weekend and I had a chance to look at one of my favourite metro stations – Chistye Prudy (it was called Kirovskaya in the USSR). It was built in 1935, and it’s just so pretty. I love how they recreated the old style METRO sign on the roof!
