Moscow is a city that cannot be described with simple words - it requires epithets and proverbs. It has been called white-walled and gold-domed, ancient and youthful, hospitable and business-like, solemn and merry and bustling all at once. A sun, feeding life, which spins around it . In other words, a true capital.

This was the first Metro masterpiece of its architect, Boris Vilensky. Unlike most of the other stations built in the 1930s, this one has only one row of pillars, not two. The pillars are faced with biyuk-yanka, the yellowish-brown marble-like limestone from the Crimea, matching the yellow and red tiling of the walls. The semi-spherical lights in the caissons above the tracks on either side of the pillars, completed the composition. Even though those fixtures were removed, and a row of fluorescent lights has been installed instead along the pillar axis, the station remains dimly illuminated, and the twilight underscores the beauty of the stone finishing. Krasnoselskaya is on the proven cultural heritage list.
