Rare presentation of the architecture of the Moscow Metro stations.The author was one of the architects of the grandiose Dvorets Sovetov station (renamed Kropotkinskaya in 1957). When opened in 1935, the Moscow Metro was the first underground railway system in the Soviet Union. It was named (until 1955) after Lazar Moiseyevich Kaganovich, the Communist Party Secretary who organized and contributed greatly to the building of the Moscow Metro. From 1935 to 1937 he was Narkom (minister) for the railways, and was given the nickname "Iron Lazar" for his ruthless implementation of Stalin's purging policy, organizing the arrests of railway administrators and managers as alleged saboteurs.
