Nyvky (Ukrainian: Нивки) is a station on Kiev Metro's Sviatoshynsko-Brovarska Line. The station was opened on November 5, 1971, and is named after Kiev's Nyvky neighbourhood. It was designed by Boris Pryimak, I.L. Maslenkov, V.C. Bohdanovskyi, and T.A. Tselikovska.

The station is shallow underground, along with the Beresteiska and the Sviatoshyn stations, which are the first stations of the Kiev Metro system that are not lain deep underground. The station consists of a central hall with rows of circular columns near the platforms. The columns are covered with glazed blue-coloured tiles. On the tiled walls along the tracks is strip of plant motifs. The entrance to the station is located on the corner of the Peremohy Prospekt (Victory Avenue) and the Scherbakova Street.
