Kiyevsky railway terminal (Russian: Ки́евский вокза́л, Kievskiy vokzal) also known as Moscow Kiyevskaya railway station (Russian: Москва́-Ки́евская, Moskva-Kievskaya) is one of the nine railway terminals of Moscow, Russia. It is the only railway station in Moscow to have a frontage on the Moskva River. The station is located at the Square of Europe, in the beginning of Bolshaya Dorogomilovskaya Street in Dorogomilovo District of Moscow.

As the name suggests, there are regular services to Kiev. There used to be regular services to Belgrade, Zagreb, Varna, Bucharest, Sofia, Niš, Budapest, Prague, Vienna and Venice as well. A hub of the Moscow Metro is located nearby.

History and design[edit]

The station was built between 1914 and 1918 in the Byzantine Revival style, which is especially pronounced in the 51 m-high (167 ft) clocktower. Originally named the Bryansk station, it was designed by Ivan Rerberg and Vladimir Shukhov, and is considered an important landmark of architecture and engineering of the time.

The station building is flanked by a gigantic train shed which is distinguished by its simplicity and constructive boldness. The platforms are covered by a massive glazed parabolic structure (length 321 metres (1,053 ft), width 47.9 metres (157 ft), height 30 m (98 ft)) weighing over 1250 tons. Its open-work steel trusses are clearly visible, and they demonstrate the elegance of the grandiose building.
