Českomoravská (Czech pronunciation: [ˈtʃɛskomorafskaː]) is a Prague Metro station on Line B opened in 1990. It is under Drahobejlova street in Vysočany. Českomoravská was a terminal station until the extension of Line B to Černý Most in 1998.

The station was built using the TBM method and has a platform 26 m (85 ft) below ground level. There is one exit through an escalator tunnel. An adjacent bus station serves as terminal for some urban and suburban lines in the northeast of Prague. The multifunctional O2 arena, formerly Sazka Arena, built in 2004, is next to the Českomoravská station.

Zápotockého was the originally intended name for this station (after Czech communist politician Antonín Zápotocký), but this idea was abandoned after the Velvet Revolution in 1989. The current name Českomoravská (literally: Bohemo-Moravian) derives from the large Českomoravská Kolben-Daněk engineering company, once based nearby.
