The Northern River Station was opened on May 2, 1937. The building of the new station impressed with the scale of architecture and richness of decor: the main staircase and terraces - "decks" with arches, fountains, palm trees, which were planted a week before the opening. The lobby and the rooftop restaurant were decorated with custom-made shell and lily-of-the-valley lamps, and the facade was decorated with porcelain medallions with nautical themes and iconic objects from the 1930s. The composition was crowned with a spire with a weather vane inlaid with Ural gems. At the 1937 World Exhibition in Paris, the authors of the project - architects Alexei Rukhlyadev and Vladimir Krinsky - received a prestigious award.
The exhibition will run until November 22. Free admission.
