Troieschyna (Ukrainian: Троєщина) or since 1987 Vygurivschyna-Troieschyna (Ukrainian: Виґурівщина-Троєщина) is a large neighbourhood of Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. Troieschyna is an outskirt located on the city's northern left-bank and is administratively part of the Desna Raion.

The neighborhood is a large whole-planned bedroom district housing the population of at least 240,000 residents[1] but also includes a small industrial area. Troieschyna only became part of Kiev municipality in 1988; prior to that it was a village of Kiev Oblast which still exists on the edge of the new neighborhood.

The area suffers from inadequate transport links to the rest of the city. Kiev City authorities have at one point decided on extending the Kiev Metro system to Troieschyna, either through the proposed Livoberezhna Line or the Podilsko-Vyhurivska Line which is currently under construction. However, cost of building a new metro line was too high and the proposal was scrapped in favor of modernizing an existing light rail system.[2]
