Rumyantsevo – Abstract Underground Art

Most visitors of our city know, that main Moscow Museum is located underground. I just wrote about historical stations with classic soviet architecture. However, Moscow Metro has already 199 stations (in 80 years)! And it is scheduled to open another 16 until the end of 2016 and over 50 by 2020, each with its own unique design. Thus recently was opened the first station outside the city called “Rumyantsevo”. Its interiors are designed in abstract style with granite plinth of black gabbros (high-strength material used for building facades) and stained glass elements in the spirit of Mondrian’s paintings.
