Underpass Art, Rostov-on-Don

4.6
#5 of 73 in Things to do in Rostov-on-Don
For a fleeting spot of color in your walk around Rostov-on-Don, check out the tiled mosaics of Underpass Art as you cross under the area's main road. Created during the post-World War II Soviet era, this series of underpasses explore the positive aspects of Russian life in bold colors and forms, representing an idealized view of the Soviet state. Witness scenes of agricultural workers, forgers and welders, as well as large-scale depictions of World War II battles, complete with weaponry, tanks, flags, and explosions. Try to keep moving as you look at the art, as the underpasses are busy thoroughfares and it can be difficult and obstructive to stop.
