Demiivska (Ukrainian: Демiïвська) is the first station on Kiev Metro's Obolonsko–Teremkivska Line's Holosiiv-Teremky extension opened on December 15, 2010. It is situated on the "Holosiivski" avenue. It serves the residential areas around, the major marketplace Demiivskyi Rynok, and the cities central intercity bus station.

History[edit]

The station was due to open in late 2008. Later, Metro officials rescheduled the opening to March 2009. The opening was again postponed to Independence Day August 2009, but this date was also unmet.[1] A trial run of a train took place on November 5, 2010.[2] Finally the extension, including the station, opened on December 15, 2010.

Design[edit]

Designed by architect Valeriy Gnevishev, the station features a typical pillar trispan with a new "flower" design on the pillars dominated by the red and beige palette. The station is built by cut-and-cover and has three levels, an underground waiting area and two escalators leading to two mezzanine levels before reaching the platform. Entrances are on both sides of the avenue.
