Yugo-Zapadnaya (Russian: Ю́го-За́падная, English: Southwestern), is the southwestern terminus of the Sokolnicheskaya Line of the Moscow Metro. Like dozens of other Metro stations dating to the 1960s (1963, in this case), the station was built according to the standard pillar-trispan or "centipede" design. The architect was Ya. V. Tatarzhinskaya. Visually nondescript, the station's color scheme is mainly white. Yugo-Zapadnaya has four entrances, all grouped around the intersection of Prospekt Vernadskogo and Pokryshkina Street.
In late 2014, three new stations on the Sokolnicheskaya Line will be opened, and Yugo-Zapadnaya will cease to be the terminus. The next station in the southwestern direction will be Troparyovo.
