Before the current station opened on 21 October 1961, Pervomayskaya referred to the temporary station located in the Izmaylovo depot near the present-day Izmaylovskaya.

BuildingEdit

The station was the first to be built to the standard column tri-span design which would from then become the most widespread in Moscow Metro and in other ex-USSR cities, with slightly flared red marble pillars and tiled walls. The architects were M. F. Markovsky and Ya. V. Tatarzhinskaya.
