Underpass Art, Rostov-on-Don

#Must See
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. Take a look at our Rostov-on-Don road trip tool to schedule your visit to Underpass Art and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Such subways more found nowhere else! This I confirm pomotavshis in different cities of Russia. Rostov-na-Donu-itself a very picturesque town with bright colors, beautiful girls, sunlight ... but down in the subways at the intersection of main street and Bolshaya Sadovaya avenues Voroshilovsky or Budennovskim, you find yourself in a fairy tale of the mosaic. During the great patriotic war, peacetime, consisting of childhood-adolescence-youth, Cossack traditions and its history. Down in the street b. Garden, will understand themselves and not regret it! Forgot to add-the entire mosaic-cut manually pieces of Czech standard tile trim 70-ies! Perhaps this was done is not easy.

  • Subways are decorated with mosaics made from pieces of ceramic tiles. Almost each have something to admire. Locals claim that the pictures were created by local artists students as examinations.
