Novoslobodskaya is a Moscow Metro station in the Tverskoy District of the Central Administrative Okrug, Moscow. It is between Belorusskaya and Prospekt Mira stations. Novoslobodskaya was opened on 30 January 1952. Alexey Dushkin, the station's architect, has long wished to utilise stained glass in decoration of a metro station, the first drawings date to pre–World War II times. In 1948, with the aid of a young architect Alexander Strelkov, Dushkin came across the renowned artist Pavel Korin, who agreed to compose the artworks for the panels; the rest of the station was designed around the glass panels. Dushkin, taking the standard pylon layout designed the overall impression to resemble that of underground crypt, it is best known for its 32 stained glass panels, which are the work of Latvian artists E. Veylandan, E. Krests, M. Ryskin; each panel, surrounded by an elaborate brass border, is set into one of the station's pylons and illuminated from within. Both the pylons and the pointed arches between them are faced with pinkish Ural marble and edged with brass molding.
At the end of the platform is a mosaic by Pavel Korin entitled "Peace Throughout the World." The stained glass panels, the mosaic, the brass trim, the elegant conical chandeliers were all cleaned and restored in 2003. The vestibule is an imposing structure with a grand portico, located on the northeast corner of Novoslobodskaya and Seleznevskaya streets. From this station it is possible to transfer to Mendeleyevskaya station on the Serpukhovsko-Timiryazevskaya Line. Media related to Novoslobodskaya at Wikimedia Commons

Aleksandrovsky Sad (Moscow Metro)
Aleksandrovsky Sad is a station of the Filyovskaya line of the Moscow Metro. It was designed by A. I. Gontskevich and S. opened on 15 May 1935 along with the first stage of the metro. The station is situated under the southern part of the Vozdvizhenka Street next to the building of the Russian State Library; the northern of the two side platforms of the station works during rush hours only. The station was not included in the plans for the first stage due to its closeness to the Biblioteka Imeni Lenina station; when a change to the plans was introduced with a new station it was decided not to augment the design of the planned large tunnel with parallel tracks separated by a row of columns, but to modify it by increasing its height and building platforms on the sides in what is known as a Parisian Style. Construction began in July 1934, problems were encountered. Under the street was situated a massive sewage pipe consisting of fragile ceramic, with an outflow of two million buckets. In such conditions a slight vibration in the soil would have caused a serious accident since the proposed subway tunnels were only 1.5–2 metres away from it.
A few solutions to the problems were proposed, either to temporary turn off the sewer system and deposit the massed water via a gully on the Arbatskaya square into the Moskva River, or to relay the sanitation into metallic pipes. Moscow Soviet discarded both ideas, the former out of sanitary and hygienic interests, the second one because that would have required closing off the whole street for a few weeks to the traffic. Engineer Kulbakh came up with a more innovative solution – relaying the collector not from trenches dug up from the surface, but from those in which the walls of the tunnels were built. Works on a shared 40-metre stretch were carried out with superior precision and accuracy, thus preventing the collector to be damaged, with no injuries or streets being closed off. For the remaining part of the station little problems took place and in record times on 31 January 1935 the station was completed; the unique circumstances which resulted in station is accredited to its current appearance with side platforms that are curved and three rows of octagonal columns.
The two outer rows of columns, which run along the centre line of each platform, are faced with white marble. The third row of columns, painted white and resting on square, black-tiled piers to account for the difference in height between the track bed and the platforms, runs along the main axis of the station and separates the two tracks. Passenger cross over a central bridge, added later. For entrances and exists as well as transfers to the close by station Biblioteka Imeni Lenina, a temporary vestibule was built, was situated on the corner of Vozdvizhenka and Mokhovaya streets. A more permanent vestibule was planned to be included inside the massive building of the Lenin library. One more vestibule was planned on the western end exiting to a subway underpass across the demolished Voyentorg building. Staircases from the platforms still go to rooms that are used for service needs. No direct transfer to Biblioteka Imeni Lenina existed, because on the first stage trains went from Sokolniki to Smolenskaya and onto Park Kultury one after the next.
Although transfer corridors were completed soon after, it is unlikely that they were used prior to the opening of the Pokrovskiy radius in 1938 which allowed to separate Arbatskiy from Kirovskiy. During this time the main library building was being completed which had plans to accommodate a metro entrance inside it; the new vestibule was due to be opened in 1940, but it became apparent that the station will not cope with the passenger traffic that will bestow upon it, a reconstruction project was developed. Both platforms would be connected with a small footbridge over the paths, the transfer corridors were to double in width; however World War II delayed the plans' realisation, the new vestibule was opened only in 1946. During this time the reconstruction was carried out, with the footbridge being directly accessible from the vestibule, its pre-war planning is demonstrated in the light architecture, uncharacteristic of the postwar Stalinist monumentalism. The dark narrow corridors with staircase were widened and leveled by raising the floor a total of 1.5 metres.
On the 24 December 1946 of that year the reconstruction was complete, the station was renamed as Kalininskaya following the disestablishment of the Comintern. On 5 April 1953 a new, deep Arbatsky radius was launched. Kalininskaya was closed to passengers and its underground section was sealed; the vestibule inside the library was handed over to Arbatskaya which required an escalator to be built to connect to the main underground lobby of the new station, a staircase was built in place of Kalininskaya's foyer. The passenger traffic was divided, to rise – escalator, down – staircases. Two out of three passes to Kalininskaya's platforms were sealed. However, on 8 November 1958 metro traffic on the new Filyovskaya line was re-opened, starting from Kalininskaya and including the first, shallow Arbatsky radius. During the mid-1960s additional access to the subways under the crossroads as well as a second transfer corridor to Biblioteka Imeni Lenina were added. In a second reconstruction, the small escalator was replaced with a staircase.
During its history the station was renamed several times opened as Ulitsa Kominterna it was renamed in 1946 to Kali
Moscow Savyolovsky railway station
Savyolovsky station, alternatively spelled Savyolovskiy, Savelovsky or Savelovskiy, is one of the nine main railway stations in the Maryina roshcha District of Moscow. It serves suburban directions north of the city, it is called Butyrskaya vokzal because of nearby Butyrka. The station was built from 1897 to 1902, along a 130-kilometre long railway to the towns of Kashin, Kalyazin and Rybinsk; the modern name of the station originates from the name of a village Savyolovo situated along the line. As the line was built by a private company, the place of the rail station was built outside Moscow next to the outpost of Butyrka. Known as Butyrsky station, the station lacks the ornateness and grandeur of Moscow's other stations and consists of a central two-story section flanked by two single story wings; the station was inaugurated in a silver-trowel ceremony in spring 1902, an event which had direct consequences for the nearby peaceful rural areas as it increased investment and led to those areas being engulfed by the city.
When the station marked its 90th anniversary, it was internally redeveloped and restored adding a second floor and improving the quality of platforms. It was the last station to be connected with the Savyolovskaya metro station; as of 2011, the station operated only suburban commuter trains. The principal destinations are Dolgoprudny, Iksha, Dmitrov, Taldom and Dubna. There are express trains to Dubna, which have stops at Dmitrov and Bolshaya Volga. While most trains, arriving from the north, terminate there, some trains proceed to the Belorussky railway station and in the western direction; the long-distance trains, which departed from the station, were moved to the Belorussky station. From November 2004 to June 2007, an express train ran from the Savyolovsky station to Lobnya that connected with buses or taxis for the 7 km trip to the two airport terminals at Sheremetyevo. On June 10, 2008, a direct service from Savyolovsky station to a new railway station near Sheremetyevo Terminal 2 was inaugurated.
Journeys take 35 minutes, tickets cost 300 roubles. The service is operated by a subsidiary of Russian Railways. Starting from May 30, 2010, the stop on Savyolovsky station on line Belorussky railway station - Sheremetyevo was canceled. There is a bus terminal, in front of the station, serving Dmitrov, Iksha, Kashin, Laryovo and several other destinations north of Moscow. Savyolovskiy station Russian Railways Aeroexpress
