Gostiny Dvor (Russian: Гости́ный двор) is a station on the Nevsko-Vasileostrovskaya Line of the Saint Petersburg Metro. It was designed by architect C.G. Mayofis, E.S. Belyat, A.K. Andreyev, Ya.E. Moskalenko and C.P Schyukin and opened on November 3, 1967. It has two exits - one at the intersection between Griboyedov Channel and Nevsky prospect and another inside the northern side of the Gostinyi Dvor mall. The later exit has an entrance that lets the riders enter the mall directly. The station also linked to Nevsky Prospekt via a transfer corridor and a set of escalators. The station is the busiest station on the line and one of the busiest stations in the entire St. Petersburg Metro.
The station is in close proximity to various noteworthy landmarks, including Church of the Savior on Blood, Kazan Cathedral and Russian Museum. As of this writing, it is the closest station to Hermitage, Saint Isaac's Cathedral, Admiralty, Summer Garden and Bronze Horseman, though construction of Admiralteyskaya station will likely change that.
From August 2008 to August 31, 2009, Metropoliten closed the station entrance escalators for repair. This wasn't part of regularly scheduled maintenance. Rather, it was meant to counteract the damage caused by the leakings that resulted from deterioration and corrosion caused by groundwater. Metrostroy remodeled the design to better control the flow of water. During repairs, passengers had to use Nevsky Prospect station entrance to reach Gostiny Dvor.escalators and an exit to Gostiny Dvor.
