Troieschyna (Ukrainian: Троєщина) or Vygurivschyna-Troieschyna (Ukrainian: Виґурівщина-Троєщина) is a large neighbourhood of Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. Troieschyna is an outskirt located on the northern left-bank part of the city and is administratively included in the Desnianskyi Raion. It's a gigantic whole-planned bedroom district housing the population of at least 300.000 residents but also a small industrial area.
Troieschyna became part of Kiev municipality in 1988, prior to that it was a village which still survives on the edge of the new neighborhood.

The area suffers from inadequate transport links to the rest of the city. The building of the metro Livoberezhna Line is to link the area up with the rest of the city.
