Underpass Art, Rostov-on-Don

(220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Visitors should definitely see these mosaics, while trade in transitions to the end they were not destroyed. This illustration of life sovetskh people: all that is exactly what it was, so looked. These mosaics have appeared in time for my students, and immediately struck by its realism and artistic taste. From simple plain tile colors folded original artwork! Now the more appreciate these pictures: it's not like these mosaics.

  • It's like a time machine, enter the subway and transported to distant Soviet times. my first encounter was in the early 90 's, while studying in Rostov. 20 years later, when I came to Rostov, I was strongly surprised by changes in the city, literally changed everything, and that's after going down in the underground passage, was pleasantly surprised, after seeing the same mosaic paintings, subways ... ... ... .... It's cool, just like many years ago, beautifully and impressively. Advise guests of Rostov, visit these landmarks of our city.

  • One of the few examples of respect for the native city! Well done! I remember these mosaics even in the Soviet period the city. This is a "highlight" of the city and other cities should follow the example of Rostov on the Don! Be sure to visit the guests of the city!
