Preobrazhenskaya Ploshchad (Russian: Преображе́нская пло́щадь) is a Moscow Metro station in the Preobrazhenskoye District, Eastern Administrative Okrug, Moscow. It is on the Sokolnicheskaya Line, between Sokolniki and Cherkizovskaya stations.

History[edit]

Northern entrance.

The station opened in on 31 December 1965 during the extension of the Sokolnicheskaya Line to the North. As it used to be the line's terminus, the reversing sidings are in place to the Northwest of the station.

Entrances[edit]

Preobrazhenskaya Ploshchad's two vestibules are underground, with exits into Preobrazhenskaya Square, Preobrazhensky Val, Bolshaya Cherkizovskaya and Krasnobogatyrskaya streets.

Reconstruction[edit]

View of the platform. Note the broken wall

In December 2009 the wall renovation started. The aim was to make the walls look like the ones at Akademicheskaya station. By the middle of March 2010 the renovation was complete.
