LocationEdit

 
Station platform with departing train

Planernaya metro station is located at Planernaya Street in Moscow's Severnoye Tushino District. It is the northwestern terminus of the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya Line. The station was the northernmost in the Metro system until the opening of Medvedkovo in 1978. To the north of the station is the Planernoye depot, which opened with the extension (and hence relieved Krasnaya Presnya).

BuildingEdit

The architect Trenin faced the pillars with white marble and the floor with black granite. The station walls are decorated with geometric patterns formed from white, blue-grey, and yellow shades. This gives the station a very bright appearance.

Entrances / exitsEdit

The station has two surface vestibules which lead to Fomicheva and Planernaya streets.
