Belyayevo (Russian: Беля́ево) is a station on the Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya Line of the Moscow Metro which was designed by V. Polikarpova, V. Klokov, and L. Popov and opened on 12 August 1974 as part of the southwest extension of the Kaluzhsky radius. The station was built on a modified version of the standard column tri-span design, with white marble columns and tiled walls decorated with metal panels depicting various folktales (artists by J. Bodniek and Kh. Rysin); the floor is reveted with grey granite. As between 1974 and up to 1987 the station was a terminus of the Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya Line, behind the station there are a set of reversal sidings used for nighttime stands.

Belyayevo has two underground vestibules, both of which are connected to pedestrian subways beneath Profsoyuznaya Street at its intersection with Miklukho-Maklay Street on Martin Luther King Square. The daily passenger traffic is 59,800 people.
