Alma-Atinskaya (Russian: Алма́-Ати́нская) is a southern terminus station of the Zamoskvoretskaya Line of the Moscow Metro. The station was opened on 24 December 2012.[2]

Above-ground vestibule

On 29 November 2011 Moscow government decided to rename the station from "Brateyevo" (Russian: Брате́ево) into "Alma-Atinskaya" after the Russian name of the city of Almaty, former capital of Kazakhstan.[3] The change reflects the rename of "Molodyozhnaya" station of Almaty Metro, still under construction in 2012, to Moskva station as a sign of friendship between Russia and Kazakhstan.[4]

Location[edit]

The station located in the Brateyevo District. Entrances are near Brateyevskaya, Paromnaya and Klyuchevaya streets.[1]
