Rechnoy Vokzal (Russian: Речной вокзал, River Terminal) is currently the northwestern terminus of the Zamoskvoretskaya Line of the Moscow Metro. It was opened on the New Year's Eve of 1965. It is named after the North River Terminal located nearby. Until 1975 it was the northernmost station on the metro system. The design follows the standardized pillar-trispan design featuring white-flecked, brown marble pillars and tiled walls. The architects were N. Demchinsky and Yu. Kolesnikova. It has two identical vestibules, located at the intersection of Festivalnaya Street and the M10 highway.[1]

The line is being extended northward by two stations to Belomorskaya (Metro) and Khovrino, which will become the northern terminus of the line when it opens.[2]


Being one of the two closest subway stations to the Sheremetyevo International Airport (along with Planernaya, on the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya Line), Rechnoy Vokzal is connected to the airport by frequent bus and passenger van service. The bus and van terminal may move to Khovrino in the future, once that station opens.
