Rechnoy Vokzal (Russian: Речной вокзал, River Terminal) is a station on the Zamoskvoretskaya line of the Moscow Metro. It was opened on the New Year's Eve of 1965 and, until 2017, was the northern terminus of the line. It is named after the North River Terminal located nearby.

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]

Platform

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 once the transport hub is completed there.[2]

Until 1975, it was the northernmost station on the metro system and , until 2017, was the intermediate of the line until 2017. The Zamoskvoretskaya line was extended northward in 2017 to Khovrino, which became the northern terminus of the line, and will include Belomorskaya, an intermediate station that will be completed in 2019.[3]
