What awaits you
Station mysticism If you look at Komsomolskaya Square from a bird's eye view, you can see that three stations form a triangle, and, as you know, this is a mystical figure. Maybe that's why people are late for trains? Or is it all the fault of the Mobius strip, into which the railway is intertwined? On a walk, we will speculate about these riddles. And I will also tell you what kind of symbols are hidden in the mysterious elements of the facades of buildings. What secrets are kept by the clock with the zodiac signs at the Kazan station. And who, instead of Nicholas II, was the first to leave the paths of Leningrad
History and architecture in detail You will find out where the first stations were built and why exactly there, for what reason you decided to build the three largest transport hubs in one place and how to discern in this the culture of urban planning inherent in Moscow. Let's talk about how the architecture of the stations is connected with their travel directions, for example, about the tower of the Kazan railway station, stylized as the Syuyumbike tower of the Kazan Kremlin; the zero kilometer of the Trans-Siberian Railway at the Yaroslavl railway station and one of its facades, made in the neo-Russian style with elements of northern Art Nouveau
Three stations - three architects In addition, we will not ignore the personality of the architects who worked on the appearance of the stations. I will tell you about the author of the "Russian-Byzantine" style K.A. The tone and the difficulties he faced in the design. Let me explain why they say that A.V. Shchusev sold his soul to Stalin. And also I will open interesting facts from the biography of F.O.Shekhtel, who presented the Art Nouveau to the Yaroslavl station
