HistoryEdit

Kolomenskaya Station was opened on 11 August 1969 as a part of the southern line extension of the Moscow Metro system.

DesignEdit

Octagonal pillars of the station hall are lined with grey marble and the floor is riveted with red granite in the centre and grey granite at the sides. The track walls are faced with yellow ceramic tiles with a stripe of grey marble at the base. The station is adorned with copper plaques on the theme How Motherland began (sculptor E.Ladygin).[1]

ExitsEdit

The station has two underground vestibules, located on the intersection between the Andropova avenue and the Nagatinskaya/Novinki street. Both vestibules are interlinked with underpasses that offer exits to the surface level which covered glazed pavilions.

Surrounding areaEdit

The construction of the station is a typical example of Soviet urban development, as the apartment blocks that were built around it are contemporary with the station. The region that it is located in, Nagatino became part of Moscow only a few years prior to the construction of the station. Part of the track from Avtozavodskaya is above ground, and it passes over the Moskva River on the Nagatinsky Metro Bridge which was opened simultaneously with the new segment. Plans for a new station, Tekhnopark (alternative name, Prospekt Andropova) to be added in the future remains unfulfilled.
