The Lianozovo railway station, close to Moscow and part of the Savelovskaya railway complex, gained a place in the history of art thanks to its association with the “unofficial” art movement.

Oscar Rabin, leader of the Moscow artistic “underground”, lived here with his family. From the 1950s, relatives and friends of Rabin and Valentina Kropivnitskaya gathered in their little apartment.
