Mayakovskaya. Opened: September 11, 1938

During the construction of the station Mayakovskaya time to visit "Triumph Square" and "Mayakovsky Square." Its architecture - corrugated stainless steel (try throwing a coin along the crawfish - it will land on the other side!), A bit of art deco and neo-classical Stalinist. As decoration - mosaic in the niches of the glazes on sketches by A. Deineka on "Day of Soviet sky").

And much later, in 2005, the design of the new lobby appeared vault decorated with mosaics and the background, like a leaf in a cage, and against this background - a quote from the poet.
