Novoslobodskaya Metro Station

Novoslobodskaya is a Moscow Metro station on the Koltsevaya Line (circular line, №5), between Belorusskaya and Prospekt Mira stations. Novoslobodskaya was opened on 30 January 1952.

The station is best known for its 32 stained glass panels. 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. At the end of the platform is a mosaic by Pavel Korin entitled "Peace Throughout the World." The stained glass panels, the mosaic, the brass trim, and the elegant conical chandeliers were all carefully cleaned and restored in 2003.
