Victoria station (Greek: Βικτώρια) is on Athens Metro Line 1, between Omonoia and Attiki.[1] It is named after the British monarch Queen Victoria.

The station is underground and was recently renovated. It is the first underground station of the northern group of ISAP stations. The central station, Omonoia, is also underground. The architectural style of the station is Art Deco and the walls are covered with light blue tiles in contrast with the tiles of the Omonoia station, which are dark yellow.

Before and after the renovation, the station's name is shown in big white labels that were made in Germany by Emaillierwerk Gottfried Dichanz. The concept of the station is very similar to the stations in Berlin, the stairs in this concept go directly to the street.

Victoria station is 5 minutes walking distance from the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.
