Kievskaya

Other stations that stand out among the total of 222 are Prospekt Mira, Kievskaya, and Novokuznetskaya. Novo-Kuznetskaya walks you through the proud history of the Great Patriotic War, scenes of which are painted in the ceiling as octagonal roof mosaics. The Kievskaya stations rest on brown as well as the deep blue lines, and needless to say, both are worth a visit. Dedicated to the bond that Ukraine and Russia share, they exhibit rich golden decoration paired with mosaic paintings of Kiev and its people. Prospekt Mira, on the other hand, breathes a tranquil air of soberness in its white ceilings carved with geometrical patterns and floral etchings, given a rustic appearance by the extravagant copper chandeliers.
