Photographer's Note

Considered to be one of the most beautiful in the system, it is a fine example of pre-World War II Stalinist Architecture and one of the most famous Metro stations in the world. The name as well as the design is a reference to Futurism and its prominent Russian exponent Vladimir Mayakovsky.Located 33 meters beneath the surface, the station became famous during World War II when an air raid shelter was located in the station.
