Voikovskaya

Voykovskaya (Russian: Во́йковская) is a Moscow Metro station on the Zamoskvoretskaya Line. It was opened on 31 December 1964 along with two neighbouring stations to the north, Vodny Stadion and Rechnoy Vokzal. All were built according to the standardized pillar-trispan design, which was widely used in the 1960s as a cost-saving measure. The station's architects were I. Petukhova and A. Fokina. The entrance of the station is located under the M10 highway.

The station is named after Pyotr Voykov, a Soviet diplomat whose involvement in the execution of the family of the last Russian emperor Nicholas II has motivated a suggestion of Orthodox Christian groups to rename the station.
