Profsoyuznaya (Moscow Metro)

Profsoyuznaya (Russian: Профсоюзная, English: Labor Unions' Station) is a station on the Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya Line of the Moscow Metro.

Opened in 1962, Profsoyuznaya is built to a standard pillar-trispan and features pillars faced (except for very thin unfinished strips at the top and bottom) with gray marble. The walls are finished with a diamond pattern made up of 4×4 squares of white ceramic tile. The architects responsible for the station were Nina Aleshina and N. Demchinsky.
