Avtozavodskaya
Avtozavodskaya is a station of Zamoskvoretskaya Line of the Moscow Metro. It is named for the nearby Zavod Imeni Likhacheva, where ZIS and ZIL limousines were built. The station was opened in 1943, a few months before Novokuznetskaya and Paveletskaya. The architect was Alexey Dushkin.

Both the tall pillars and walls are faced with pinkish Oraktuoy marble. Additionally, Avtozavodskaya is decorated with eight mosaics depicting events of the Great Patriotic War.

In February 2004 there was a bomb explosion between Avtozavodskaya and Paveletskaya in which more than 40 people were killed.
