Sportivnaya (Russian: Спорти́вная) is a station on the Frunzensko-Primorskaya Line of the Saint Petersburg Metro. The station was designed by Alexander Konstantinov, Alexander Bystrov and Andrey Larionov. It opened on 15 September 1997 as part of the Pravoberezhnaya Line. Sportivnaya is the only double-decked station with cross-platform transfer on territory of former USSR.[citation needed] The floors are connected by two groups of escalators, one of which is closed as of 2007. The lower floor serves the southbound trains while the upper floor serves the northbound ones. The upper floor is linked to the station's exit to south-eastern side of Petrogradsky island. Since 27 May 2015 the lower floor house an entrance to an transfer corridor equipped with moving walkway which link the station to the exit on the north-eastern side of Vasilyevsky island.[1]

Nearby landmarks[edit]

The station is located in close proximity to the Petrovsky Stadium, the home stadium of the city's home football team and Yubileyny Sports Palace. The station closes during and immediately after the team's home games, mostly due to apprehension over riot damage.[citation needed] The station is also located within walking distance of Peter and Paul Fortress.
