Ploshcha Lva Tolstoho (Ukrainian: Площа Льва Толстого) is a station on Kiev Metro's Kurenivsko-Chervonoarmiyska Line. The station was opened on December 19, 1981, and is named after the writer Leo Tolstoy. It was designed by N.A. Levchuk and V.B. Zhezheryn.

The station is located deep underground and consists of a central hall with arcades in the walls. The central hall has been covered with orange-coloured marble and is lit by chandeliers and decorative lamps placed on the walls. Passenger tunnels connect the station to the Leo Tolstoy Square and another street.

The station forms a station complex with a transfer tunnel with the adjoining Palats Sportu station on the Syretsko-Pecherska Line.
