Cherkizovskaya

Cherkizovskaya (Russian: Черки́зовская) is a Moscow Metro station in the Preobrazhenskoye District, Eastern Administrative Okrug, Moscow. It is on the Sokolnicheskaya Line, between Preobrazhenskaya Ploshchad and Ulitsa Podbelskogo stations.

Design

Cherkizovskaya opened in 1990 and was the work of architects V. Cheremin and A. Vigdorov. The station is named after the former village of Cherkizovo which is a district of Moscow nowadays. The design of the station is a single vault, with a curved ceiling and a platform free of pillars. The outer walls are faced with panels of corrugated metal. Both ends of the platform are decorated with stained-glass panels above the exit stairs.

Future

In the distant future, Cherkizovskaya is intended to become part of the planned "Big Ring" line, serving as a transfer point to the Sokolnicheskaya Line. The provision for a new radial station already exists.

Entrances

The station's vestibule is located at Okruzhnoy Prospekt near the intersection with Bolshaya Cherkizovskaya Street. Lokomotiv Stadium is situated nearby.
