Heroiv Dnipra (Ukrainian: Героїв Дніпра literally: Heroes of the Dnieper) is a station on Kiev Metro's Kurenivsko-Chervonoarmiyska Line. The station was opened on November 6, 1982 in the Obolonskyi Raion of Kiev and was designed by G.D. Andreev. The Metro station is named after the street directly above it.

The station is closer to the surface than a lot of other Metro stations. The platform has a central hall with brown square columns. The walls are adorned with white and yellow marble, and the floor is red granite. There are socialist red stars (due to be removed due to 2015 decommunization laws[1]) at the top of the columns, which is also where the station's lighting comes from. The station is accessible by two passenger tunnels; one leading to Obolonskyi Prospect and the other to Heroiv Dnipra Street (from which it takes its name).
