The station was opened on September 11, 1938. Some consider it the most beautiful station in the Moscow metro system. It is somewhat futuristic, but still looks modern and fresh. There are also a lot of symbols and assumptions here, laid during construction – both for the contemporaries and for the future generations. In particular, the metal fringing, so strongly influenced by the architecture, consists of fragments of the airship, built earlier by the Tsiolkovsky project. They show the desire for the stars, for some "universal communism among all the Soviet people. And Mayakovsky was considered the most "Soviet" poet at the time. Contemporaries perfectly knew how to read between the lines and the symbolism inherent in the station was clear to them.
