The Panel Picture at the Kievskaya Metro Station Was Restored

The unique panel picture is open in the Moscow metro after its restoration.

      The metro station "Kievskaya" in Moscow is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. The main gift for this anniversary was the restoration of the unique artistic panel “A Folk Festival in Kiev”.

      The decorative composition dedicated to the 300th anniversary of the reunification of Ukraine and Russia have adorned the main hall of the metro station "Kievskaya" (radial) of the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya line during more than 50 years and was one of the key elements of the station design. In the course of time the panel darkened and was redrawn several times.

      As a result, new characters appeared on the panel and some of the figures, on the contrary, disappeared. The panel partially collapsed because of the ground water in 2010. The restoration of the composition in its original state took one and a half years.
