Sviatoshyn

Sviatoshyn (Ukrainian: Святошин) is a station on Kiev Metro's Sviatoshynsko-Brovarska Line. The station was opened on November 5, 1971, and is named after Kiev's Sviatoshyn neighborhood. It was designed by H.V. Holovko, N.S. Kolomiiets, and M.M. Syrkin. The station was formerly known as Sviatoshyno (Ukrainian: Святошино).

The station is shallow underground, along with the Beresteiska and the Nyvky stations, which are the first stations of the Kiev Metro system that are not lain deep underground. The station consists of a central hall with rows of circular columns near the platforms. On the tiled walls along the tracks is an "abstract" motif. The entrance to the station is connected with passenger tunnels on both ends of the station, passing under the Peremohy Prospekt (Victory Avenue). The western exit is connected to the Sviatoshyn Railway Station.
