"Dinamo" is a one-vaulted station designed according to the sports themed project of Sverdlovskgrazhdanproekt Institute architects A. Zaslavsky and L. Maslennikova. At the end of the platform, against the backdrop of the end wall, there is a copy of the classical sculpture Discobolus (disc thrower) by the ancient Greek sculptor Myron who was from the middle of the 5th century BC. There is a series of large openings in the upper part of the vault with soft reflected light. The track walls and floors are faced with red Karelian granite and "gazgan" patterned marble. Along the axis of the hall there are 5 lighting fixtures resembling torches. Recently (as of February 2011), sodium lamps (with bright yellow light) were installed in three torch lamps (1st, 3rd and 5th) instead of mercury-helium lamps (giving violet light).

Ground Public transportation


For a long time, the station was deprived of the attention of public transport. Currently, the station has an exit to one stop: the Yekaterinburg trolleybus.
