Partizanskaya metro station

by Olga on January 20, 2011

Partizanskaya metro station (the dark blue metro line) was opened during World War II. Originally they were going to call it “Stalin Stadium”. In fact, because of that never built stadium with 120000 sits the station was planned with unusual three tracks and two island platforms intended for crowds of fans. It was completed in 1944 and adorned with statues of heroic partizans: Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya and Matvey Kuzmin who repeated the feat of Ivan Susanin, but was renamed from Izmailovsky park into Partizanskaya only in 2005.
