Park Pobedy (Russian: Парк Победы - Victory Park), is a station of the Moscow Metro in the city's Dorogomilovo District. It is on two lines: the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya Line and the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line.


The Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya line serves the station with trains running from Pyatnitskoye Shosse in the northwest via Park Pobedy and central Moscow to Shchyolkovskaya in the northeast of the city.

As of 2015, the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya line's western section has only two stations, Park Pobedy and Delovoy Tsentr. An extension to the west, due to open in 2016, will connect Park Pobedy first with Minskaya and then other stations as far as Rasskazovka, near Vnukovo International Airport.

Park Pobedy allows cross-platform interchange between the two lines across the station's two island platforms.


Construction began in 1986. The initial plans envisaged connections from the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya line to the future Mitino-Butovskaya and the Solntsevo-Mytischinskaya Chordal lines.[1] The former was accommodated in the station's design, with two additional tracks included parallel to those of the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya line (the latter would have used a third set of track perpendicular to these). However the 1990s financial crises ended the Chordal projects; the station opened in 2003 as a terminus of the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya Line, and in 2008 the Strogino–Mitino extension of the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya line was begun from Park Pobedy. The second set of tracks saw their first use on 31 January 2014 as part of the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line's partial service to Delovoy Tsentr.[2]


This is the only Moscow metro station where all passengers board and alight trains in different locations. A further complication is that only the southern, or inbound, platform has an entrance vestibule, so passengers arriving at the northern, or outbound, platform must change platforms to leave the station.

At 84 metres underground, Park Pobedy is the deepest station in Moscow and the third deepest in the world by mean depth, after Kiev Metro's Arsenalna and Saint Petersburg Metro's Admiralteyskaya, and the very deepest station by maximum depth, 97 m.[3] It also contains the longest escalators in Europe, each one is 126 metres long and has 740 steps. The escalator ride to the surface takes approximately three minutes.

The two platforms, the work of architects Nataliya Shurygina and Nikolay Shumakov, are of identical design but have opposite colour schemes, which creates a striking effect. The pylons of the outbound platform are faced with red marble on the transverse faces and pale grey marble on the longitudinal faces. The inbound platform is exact the reverse. The station is adorned with two large mosiacs by Zurab Tsereteli depicting the 1812 French Invasion of Russia (at the end of the inbound platform) and World War II (on the outbound platform).
