Olimpiiska (Ukrainian: Олімпійська) is a station on the Kiev Metro's Obolonsko–Teremkivska Line. It was opened on December 19, 1981, and was originally named after Kiev's Republican Stadium as Respublikansky Stadion (Ukrainian: Республіканський Стадіон; Russian: Республиканский стадион). It was designed by A.S. Krushynskyi, T.A. Tselikovska, A.S. Andriienko, and Y.M. Sharanevych.
The station is built deep underground and consists of a central hall with arcades leading toward the station platforms. The walls have been covered with grey marble and the lighting comes from chandeliers. On a wall at the end of the central hall, are the Olympic rings, commemorating the 1980 Summer Olympics. The station is accessible by passenger tunnels on the Velyka Vasylkivska and another street.
