Kupchino (Russian: Ку́пчино) is a station on the Moskovsko-Petrogradskaya Line of the Saint Petersburg Metro. It was opened on December 25, 1972. It was designed by K.N. Afonskya, A.C. Getskin and I.E. Sergeyeva. According to the original plans, the station was initially supposed to be called "Vitebskaya".

Kupchino is the oldest surviving above-ground station in Saint Peterburg (the since-demolished Dachnoye predates it by several years). It has a transfer link-up to Kupchino Station of the Vitebskya Railroad. It also has two exits to outside the station, as well as a long tunnel that leads to Vitebsky Prospect.

The most famous son of Kupchino is arguably the third President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev, who grew up in this area. Another famous resident of the neighborhood is the mathematician Grigori Perelman.
