Station at Koltsevaya Line that was opened in 1954

The name of the metro station comes from the railroad station with the same name.

The station was the last ending station of Koltsevaya Line.

Among themes of 18 piers at the station you can see “Pushkin in Ukraine”, “Pereyaslavskaya Council” and “The Battle of Poltava”.

This station memorialized Ukraine due to Khrushchev who was appointed the General Secretary in 1953.

The station was decorated by a crew from Kiev whose work at the contest Khrushchev liked most of all.

Place reviews

  • Kiyevskaya (Russian: Киевская, English: Kievan) is a Moscow Metro station in the Dorogomilovo District, Western Administrative Okrug, Moscow. It is on the Koltsevaya Line, between Park Kultury and Krasnopresnenskaya stations. It is named for the nearby Kiyevsky Rail Terminal. The design for the station was chosen in an open competition held in Ukraine; the entry submitted by the team of E.I. Katonin, V.K. Skugarev, and G.E. Golubev placed first in a field of 73 and became the final design. Kievskaya features low, square pylons faced with white marble and surmounted by large mosaics by A.V. Myzin celebrating Russo-Ukrainian unity. Both the mosaics and the arches between the pylons are edged with elaborate gold-colored trim. At the end of the platform is a portrait of Lenin.
