ArchitectureEdit

The station was designed by Robert Pogrebnoi and Plyukhin. The station was the first of the newer version of the pillar-trispan with the step of the pillars further increased from 6 to 7.5 metres. The pillars are revetted with light-grey marble and the walls are revetted with steel blue marble. The upper parts of the pillars and the walls are decorated with friezes devoted to the nature of the Moscow area (by A. Kuznetsov). The floor is faced with slabs of red and brown granite and strips of white marble.
