Just another metro station...

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Elektrozavodskaya (Electricity Factory) is a Moscow Metro station on the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya Line (blue, No 3). It is one of the most spectacular and better-known stations of the system. Built as part of the third stage of the Moscow Metro and opened on 15 May 1944 during the WWII, the station is one of the iconic symbols of the system, famous for its architectural decoration which is work of architects Vladimir Schuko (who died whilst working on the station's project in 1939) and Vladimir Gelfreich.

Прекрасный снимок! Одна из моих любимых станций! Наверное утро?! LIKED!

Спасибо! Да, она мне тоже очень нравится, особенно после реконструкции! разумеется утро воскресенья (впрочем, как и другие мои снимки метро)

Just another station, but I've always heard about the Moscow subway system and it's beautiful station, this picture is an excellent rendition of it. Best wishes from Texas, Michael :)

Hello, Michael! Well, I was quite sarcastic about the title! In fact in my opinion this station is one of the most beautiful in Moscow! And this one it the most beautiful! So, welcome to Moscow and have a nice time!

Hi Dmitriy,

I hope everything is ok with you and please accept my sincere apologies for leaving this standardized message...

I just want you to know that, although lately I almost didn´t comment your photos, I'm glad I met you and choosed you as one of my favourite photographers.

By watching your photos I got to know so many amazing and wonderful places that I couldn´t even dream they exist ... not to mention that it was with them that I learned the little I know about photography...

This is my favourite picture in your gallery, so I´m adding it to my “ photos list”! Thanks for everything, my dear friend :)

A hug from Oporto, Mário Eloi Castro
