Novoslobodskaya station (Ring Line)

Opened on January 30, 1952 as part of the second stage of the line, it is one of the most famous stations on the system for its unique stained glass decoration.


It is best known for its 32 stained glass panels, which are the work of Latvian artists E. Veylandan, E. Krests, and M. Ryskin. Each panel, surrounded by an elaborate brass border, is set into one of the station's pylons and illuminated from within.


Both the pylons and the pointed arches between them are faced with pinkish Ural marble and edged with brass molding.
