Arbatskaya (Russian: Арба́тская) is a station on the Filyovskaya Line of the Moscow Metro. Completed in 1935, it was one of the original Metro stations. The design is the same standard pillar-trispan template used for Smolenskaya, Sokolniki, and Park Kultury. The pillars are faced with pinkish marble and the platform is a matching shade of granite. The walls are covered with cream-colored ceramic tile. The architect was L. Teplitskiy

Arbatskaya's vestibule is a unique five-tiered, pentagonal structure with the word "Metro" written on all sides. The building is currently painted bright red, making it noticeable and instantly recognizable. Another entrance is planned to be added to the other end of the station by 2010.
