Oktyabrskaya Station, Moscow Metro
Arched dome in the interior of Oktyabrskaya Station - designed by Leonid Polyakov who took the neoclassical empire style as the basis, and incorporated the themes of the 1812 victory over Napoleon to match the 1945 Soviet victory in the Great Patriotic War. The station has a large vestibule on the Kaluzhskaya Square hence the station's original name Kaluzhskaya.
